London’s broadband? It’s  quicker to send by bike

MP says digital firm needs nine hours to upload a two-minute film

London’s hi-tech businesses are being held back by a lack of superfast broadband connections with one TV firm sending films by bicycle instead as it is quicker, the Commons was being told today.

Staff at Proudfoot, a digital content provider in St John Street, get on their bikes to transport footage to Covent Garden in 15 minutes rather than taking an hour or two to upload the material and send it using broadband.
