I know, I'm getting 12Mbps down on a good day with a following wind, and barely 2Mbps up. Seeing someone with 290Mbps made me want to cry....

Now you're just making it worse. Mummy, I want some of that!...😭

You live on a beautiful sunny island though which is a fair trade off
Agreed. I wouldn't swap. We should be getting 100Mbps FTTH soon. We'd have had it by now but for COVID. I'm still green with envy though. I can't imagine what 375Mbps feels like......o_O

BTW my first 'online' session ever was via an accoustic coupler (Google them, or visit the science museum) at 300bps. How times change. :)

Wow, 300bps, I think my first home internet connection was a dial up connection, cant recall the speed but am sure it was higher than that! The modem handshake noise was my abiding internet memory and the slow line by line building of an image, oh and cursing when someone made a phone call and cut your internet connection!

With an acoustic coupler, a device you jammed the phone handset into, if you so much as bumped the table it was on you'd get data errors. The coupler had to be on a separate table from the keyboard, even typing would upset the connection. Who else remembers Compuserve?

According to google - Compuserve.com still exists, operating under Verizon's Oath subsidiary, the merger of AOL and Yahoo. Even though most people who remember Compuserve and used it prior to the Internet probably haven't thought about it in years, Compuserve never completely away
