But a lot of you here are too young to know what it was like. Yes, a lot of you here didn't start using the net until broadband was a common thing.



Also, this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsNaR6FRuO0


Edit: It's a gif simulating a picture loading on dial-up. It was not working for me a moment ago. So if the gif isn't moving...something ain't right.

LMFAO until i realized the pic was supposed to load slowly, I started a virus scan immediately. KML

Oooh man, nostalgia from the days I had super slow internet.

The wait was not worth it.

It's a wonder how anyone did anything on the internet back in the day when the internet speeds were very slow.

56k modems were "fast" at one time, and we'd sometimes complain "ugh, you still have a 28k modem?". And heck, before that, there were the 14.4k modems.

Why did you have to remind me of this!? I was hoping to never hear those sounds again!

I started using the internet since I was 9, so I remember clearly what it was like.

I used to love playing POGO chess when I was 9. and hated it when the internet dropped out everytime someone made a call to your phone.


How times have truly changed...

I also remember we couldn't use the phone line and the internet simultaneously.

I still have my 300 baud modem, in fact two of them. This equates to 30 characters per second.
