    In 1997 it was around 3.5Kbps, the phone line was split between 2 houses and was noisy as f***.
    Finding pron was tricky then and a single picture took ages to nab with no preview!
    The excitement waiting to see what you got lol.

    I had 26.4k dialup until 2008. ... Yup not even the full speed of...dialup. And yet now i have 2Gig, oh how things change.

    As much as it wasn't 3.5Kbps, things like mIRC being laggy was just...sad.

    1000/50 cable @ 2.5gbit LAN:

    With 1gbit LAN it never passed 940mbit/s download, often stayed below 900. NIC is a Realtek 8125 1-port @ PCIe 2.0 x1 I bought for 20 Euros. More than worth it.

    While old post, that's funny. I remember that. :p

    It was like a whole new world then. MP3s, Napster...

    I had 56K from 99 to 2002. It's so bizarre. I can still remember like it was yesterday. How different the world was then. 2002 was when I got ISDN until 2004 for 512K ADSL. Those were the days playing Quake 3 on 56K and ISDN with Americans until 3am - 4am.

    Funny how in one hand it seemed so far away yet on the other it felt like only yesterday.
