The best I ever remember connecting at was 52k. Then someone picks up the phone and gets you disconnected.

I had Dial Up in the early 2000's...I had a US Robitics Modem, was supposedly pretty good. I don't really remember the speed but it wasn't all together unusable, but compared to now I would probably jump right out my window if I ever had to hear that little sing song and see a page load in sections, lol!!

I don't know if anyone here still offers Dial Up, but you could get it right up till like 2006 or so, they even still had adverts on T.V, until DSL started to become cheaper. Luckily since we're a realitively small country by size, we have very good 3G covereage, so if you can't get DSL you can sometimes get 3G, unless you live in the middle of no where, then well, no internets for you, ha ha!!

Didn't think it is was possible to have a memory that stretches that far back to last eternity.

That's not weird, it's logical. Which is easier to cover with 3G signal: a huge country or a tiny one?

I live in one of the most densely populated, tiny island nations on earth, and yet our internet still doesn't exceed 5Mb/s on average.
