A South African information technology company on Wednesday proved it
was faster for them to transmit data with a carrier pigeon than to send
it using Telkom, the country's leading internet service provider.
Local news agency SAPA reported the 11-month-old pigeon, Winston,
took one hour and eight minutes to fly the 80 km (50 miles) from
Unlimited IT's offices near Pietermaritzburg to the coastal city of
Durban with a data card was strapped to his leg.
