Think your Internet is Slow? Speed Up Your Internet with Carrier Pigeons

Earlier this month a company in Johannesburg tested whether a DSL connection could transfer data faster than a carrier pigeon could.
The 11 month old pigeon flew 1 hour and 8 minutes to deliver the data 50 miles with a memory stick attached to its leg.
The Download on a DSL line was the looser at 2 hours and nearly 7 minutes.
Reuters reported that the South African Technology company did this stunt to show how slow the DSL connections are in that country. They do have underwater fiber optic lines planned for next year.
The bird won by quite a margin and it just goes to show you, slow connections are not EVEN for the birds….
