The technicians in Idaho have been scratching their heads in attempts to understand why their state has the slowest networks in the country. The results appeared to be surprising to say the least.
A few days ago Pando Network released the shocking findings of a cross-country study on Internet connection speeds. The research, in particular, determined that Idaho had the slowest networks. At the same time, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island were recognized as the top of the pack. Afterward, the New York Times decided to try and figure out why the Internet in the Potato State was the slowest one. The results appeared to be not just surprising, but even shocking: it was all because of real bears.
Most people would perhaps think that slow Internet is caused by the fact that only a bit over 1,500,000 people reside in Idaho, so telephone companies simply aren’t bothered investing in cable. Indeed, this state is known as the Potato State, since the potato is its major crop, and a number of its politicians have been root vegetables.
However, the Times reported that there’s another problem: the matter is that the Internet depends on line-of-site towers built to help it get over the more mountainous regions. And here come… the bears! As hilarious as it may sound, bears like the Internet towers since they are good for scratching that part of their backs that they normally can’t reach.
In other words, real bears rub against towers, thus causing it to lose line of site connections. Local broadband provider’s representatives admitted that when it happened first time, work crews had to ride up in snowmobiles to figure out the problem. They probably meant to hint that these are a sort of problems city people don’t have in an urban area because of a bear shortage…
