Pigeon-speed

This morning I went to a meeting about a project at work, where I was pleased to find that the files we were talking about transferring are likely to only be a few MB in size and not the potential GB I had been starting to look at options for. That means that I do not have to look at finding solutions for greatly increased capacity and also that bandwidth costs and speed will not be an issue for either ourselves or our contributors in the project.

Along with the relief came the memory of a recent article about research in South Africa which showed that a carrier pigeon can still get the edge on broadband for data delivery speeds! No need to get the pigeons in for us just yet!
