I remember having dial up, the thing I hated the most was that I could only go online at certain times because people might have phoned us during business hours, and only allowing one person online at a time. But back when I used it I never went to sites that took to long to download, and I never downloaded anything, so the speed issue wasn't that much of a problem back then.

There is no substitute for real speed.

156 MBit, (ATM) connection.
Talk about kick arse....
there's something so sinisterly wrong with copying 700 MB inside 5 minutes!!!....

Well the dark side looks pretty bright, lol! Yeah we had problems with our phone/dial up. Now we can stay on and use the phone, and my wife can finally get on the internet instead of waiting for like the one hour that I am off

Comcast just upgraded our cable connection from 1.5mbps to 3mbps for free. I can feel the difference when downloading big files. I still remember the old days when I was on 56k dialup, I would rather not be on the internet if that was my only choice. I am so happy to have broadband and could never imagine going back to anything slower.

I realise I am showing my age,

Nut I remember the good old days... of my Comoodore 64 and the 300 bps modem....
I thought was just top *plum* when I upgraded to 1200!

Then I decided it was time to become a SysOp of a bulletin board and upgraded to a 2400 Phew the speed was amazing!
then there was 7200, then 9600, then 17.2!

(Sits back, rocking nackward and forawrds in rocking shair out on the porch, blanket over my lap, smoking a pipe.....ahhh the good 'ol days!)
What ever happened to them??
