Chattanooga Choo Choo v. Pigeon Post v. UK Broadband

Yesterday I blogged on the Chattanooge Gig to the home for smart metering, grid and domestic broadband. Today the BBC carries news of a contest between carrier pigeon and UK rural broadband for an uploaded file. I have just done a quick calculation and it looks as thought the carrier pigeon would also beat almost all UK urban broadband upload services, including those which offer “up to 20 mbps” for download.

The #roryandtref pigeon story is best told by Trefor Davies of Timico who made it all happen, with help from NextgenUs, Chris Conder and of course, some pigeons!
