As mentioned in a previous post, a Pigeon raced against Telkom today to transfer 4GB of data over a distance of about 70km.
To no-one’s (well maybe the management of Telkom ) surprise, Winston, the pigeon won by a lot of bandwidth to spare. It took Winston only 2 hours 6 minutes and 57 seconds to transfer the data from Howick to Hillcrest.
Congrats to Winston, hope he got a nice bowl of yummy seeds to munch on. The question now remains – will carrying data between Howick and Hillcrest become Winston’s full-time job.
