    Really? It's at the southern tip of Africa....What I said wasn't a knock against the country; I'm just saying that the country is much more advanced due to Western intervention.

    LOL

    maybe its not nice to say in your eyes but its the truth.
    compared to the internet speed in my country your speed is just plain sh1t!
    so i really dont know what you ment with "South Africa is not some silly other dirty African country dude"
    you can post the most beautifull pictures of africa, but it wont make your internet faster :)

    this test is retarded...

    its like i live next to my neighbor's home and we connect our computers in a LAN, and then i send a 4 giga folder full of 1000000 subfolders, and we know what a pain in the ass is to transfer millions of small folders versus a huge big one... and then send a pigeon to my neighbor with a usb stick with the same files... of course the pidgin would win because it is right next to my friking house!

    sorry, but as long and the rest of the continent has no infrastructure, you guys are isolated, why there is no investments in fiber optic cables underwater like Europe and US have?

    Nah, it says when the transfer starts they must first copy all the data to the usb stick. And when the pigeon arrives, they must copy it back to a computer.
    Then the LAN wins by far!

    You nailed it

    The internet connections in australia are just plain stupid, speeds are real good but they come with ridiculous bandwidth limits

    I'm moving back to the Arab Emirates :biggun:

    I just had the greatest idea of all.
    We should make broadband cables out of pigeons!

    What do you use? Cable? DSL? Cat5? Fiber?
    No, i use pigeon lines. Looks like sausage links.
