Pigeon fancier

It appears that UK broadband users should be thankful what they get, even though it’s a long way short of the advertised headline speeds.
A South Africa financial services company pitted its local broadband service against a pigeon to send a four gigabyte file 80 km. The pigeon, Winston, arrived with his encrypted USB stick in 2:06:57 hours, by which time 4% of the file had arrived over the wires.
His owner reckons that with training Winston could cut his time to 45 minutes.
That’s what Downtime would call superfast broadband.
