So you thought Google TiSP (Toilet Internet Service Provider) was an April 1st joke? Not in The Netherlands…

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/04/02

If you thought the 2007 Welcome to Google TiSP (Toilet Internet Service Provider) and the Google TiSP ACTUAL Installation – YouTube formed a great April 1st joke, then you have miscounted the futurists.

Found out a while ago, that in The Netherlands, a variation of TiSP was used to provide internet through the sewage system:

  1. July 18th, 2012, in the province Friesland, a glas fiber cable was put through the sewer system:
    Frisian: Glêsfezelkabel troch rioel | Omrop Fryslân – Alle dagen nij!.
    Dutch: Glasvezelkabel door riool | Omrop Fryslân – Alle dagen nij!.
  2. Late 2012, plans were revealed to connect a few farms to glassfiber using the sewing system in early 2013:
    Twents dorp krijgt glasvezel via het riool | IT Pro | Tweakers.

The Belgians and Germans seem to favour the water pipes over the sewer though:
