Yesterday I blogged on the Chattanooge Gig to the home for smart metering, grid and domestic broadband. Today the BBC carries news of a contest between carrier pigeon and UK rural broadband for an uploaded file. I have just done a quick calculation and it looks as thought the carrier pigeon would also beat almost all UK urban broadband upload services, including those which offer “up to 20 mbps” for download.
