Carrier pigeons have won a race against rural broad band after delivering USB keys more quickly than a computer using rural broadband was able to download.
Ten pigeons carrying USB keys were released from a Yorkshire farm on Thursday. They reached their destination in Skegness, 120 miles away, within an hour and a quarter.
Meanwhile, a five-minute video download which was started at the moment of release had only managed to upload 24 per cent of a 300MB file within that time.
