I used to use dial-up for years... And as our phone line had a DACS service put onto it by stupid BT - I only got a speed of 26.6kbps.
Then I got ADSL (Broadband), and I now get 576kbps. I wish I could get cable though...
My brother has a T3 connection, and that knocks the socks off Broadband (even the faster Broadband).
I don't know how I coped with dial-up... My parents are now very pleased I got us ADSL - they can go and check their e-mails without worrying about
the time it may take, or clicking "Connect" each time - we never have to click anything ever again. My wireless router (also a modem) deals with all
that, and I only have to restart it (which takes 5 secs) about once every couple of months - it's on 24/7 aswel.
And now, with people traveling to cities - they can connect their wireless laptop upto the local wireless point (many cities have a few of these) for
free! And get instant fast Internet
