A pigeon beat a Telkom ADSL line in the transfer of 4GB of data across 70Km near Durban, South Africa. The pigeon, called Winston, tweeted in flight. IPoAC or CPIP (RFC1149) was used, making this the largest data transfer using the protocol reported.
Reports did not specify if any protection against H5N1 was used.
