Let’s take a trip back to 2009 when a tech company in South Africa had a wild idea to challenge their internet service provider. You won’t believe what they did! They put their faith in a trusty carrier pigeon named Winston 🐦 to see if it could beat their provider’s sluggish internet speed.
Guess what? Winston totally rocked it! Flying like a champ from Pietermaritzburg to Durban, a distance of 50 miles, Winston took only one hour and eight minutes to get there. And get this: Winston took a mere two hours, six minutes, and 57 seconds to complete the whole data transfer, while the office staff could only download a tiny four percent of that data in the same length of time!
The moral of this feathery tale is clear: slow and unreliable internet can drive anyone crazy, even those brave enough to challenge it with a bird.
If your internet is driving you crazy, give us a call and we’ll get your data moving fast with Winston (just kidding) or one of our fast and reliable internet partners. 🚀🌐
