"Why?? Phone lines & telephone exchanges in this rural area are not of
sufficient quality to efficiently transmit the amount of data required.
We do not have access to high speed internet connections.
Fortunately a pigeon will transmit up to 1 Gigabyte back the 20km from
cave to base in around 10 minutes."
I thought this was a joke. But Waitomo Adventures is indeed using
pigeons for data transfer.
I don't believe an IP traffic was involved.
