Carrier Pigeon faster than ADSL

It's what I've always suspected was true of broadband in New Zealand; it's faster to transmit information by carrier pigeon than by ADSL. This article from BusinessDay in South Africa reports on a trial where a carrier pigeon carried 4GB of data over 70km in a pinch under 2 hours 7 minutes, during which time only 5% of the 4GB was downloaded over a Telekom ADSL connection.
