Additional Post Today - Pigeon Faster than Broadband

We have been passing this throughout our teams today. If you have any sort of broadband (ADSL - Cable), then you will get a kick out of this. I will never complain about the slowness of my DSL ever again after reading this.

I know from friends that internet access in South Africa is the worse than dail up if they have it at all. So that said, a company in South Africa took it to the next level. Here is the first paragaph of the news article >

"A Durban IT company pitted an 11-month-old bird armed with a 4GB memory stick against the ADSL service from the country's biggest web firm, Telkom."

Guess who won?

  1. Depending on how long it has to go, I'm really not sure ADSL in the states would win either...

  2. Huh. And I thought broadband in Australia was shit >_<


Don't just Read and Run, leave me a note about what you thought of the blog!
