Pigeon racing catches on

It seems that the recent pigeon racing stunt by Tref Davies of Timico, which was based on the South African race, to highlight how impoverished rural broadband is, has now been used by the Dutch to show how fab their fibre network is!

They sent an 8gig file (about the size of an HD movie) by carrier pigeon, by fibre and by cable.
