Holy Slow Poke Internet! Sounds like dial up speeds. Get get a little better than 72Mbps on my phone's hot spot and 100 Mbps when I wire up a LAN with an ether net cable.

Back in the late 90s for me, the Internet was an Exclusive Community during that time.
56k Modems were the next big thing and cable internet around the corner.
My first internet plan with Time Warner (Formally Paragon Cable now Spectrum) was 6 Mbs DL 1.2 Mbs UP, it was also during the advent releases of both Xbox Live and Playstation network that really helped in cable internet expansion.
At the time, 6Mbs internet was blistering fast.
Nowadays, I'm paying $80 a month for 115mbps DL/15Mbps UP, ZERO data cap, Cable based.
