Stephen Fry Bashing New Zealand Internet via Twitter
Stephen Fry, who was recently in Wellington on set for The Hobbit, posted on Twitter about the quality of internet access in New Zealand. His comments have created quite a media stir in the last few days. The tweet read, “Rise up, Kiwis and demand better? You wouldn’t allow crap roads with pot holes and single file.” He later tweets, “I know, it’s feeble to moan. I’m on set now. It’s 6:15 and the wifi here is good. But I have so many videos and sound files to upload.”
Should this actor’s troubled wireless experience mean the internet provided in Middle Earth is sub-par?
Fry’s spokesperson said Fry was working from another residence in Wellington when he was unaware the broadband data cap was surpassed for the basic plan the home owners were on. This is what caused his broadband connection diminish to a lower speed.
