It's official, ADSL works over wet string

Attn AT&T:

He got some proper string, and made it wet... It turns out he needed salty water to get anywhere.

A 2m length... And the result - it works!!! Not even that slow (3½Mb/s down) though slow uplink. Don't dare touch the string though...

As a bonus, fit tin cans to both ends and you get voice as well as broadband on the same wet string!

  1. Faster than the Verizon DSL I had before switching to a fixed wireless provider.

    I remember Adam Engst having a anecdotal story about someone apparently having run a LocalTalk network between two buildings using the hot and cold water pipes... this is an upgrade.

    Maybe it's the Queen's english but that, sir, is twine.
