ehh nope. I'm surprised there are 128kbps streams in the chart. Most people I know were still on a 56k dial up connection back then

Europe had a faster roll-out of high speed Internet access than North America did.

Imagine what will happen when every one has access to 4G wireless, HD video and surround sound audio streaming

@ sankt, do You want to say, that WAV-Streams or FLAC-Streams in SHOUTcast Radio will be possible some day? From an artist-colleague I have learned to name .wav-files and also the album-folders of the .wav-files correctly (I have cover.jpg in each wav-album). Winamp can show at least artist, title, track number, album (no year and no genre, of course). Also WMV-Streams and a new developement for that would be beautiful (but please note: there are more than only 1 kind of WMV, and it has to be the right kind).

I think, Frank and I ourselves don't have the best internet connection, but some others do that, and a very good internet connection is very important to upload 25 GB video-files to YouTube...

I remember being amazed by my brother's strange need for a CD-ROM drive in the pc. If something doesn't fit on a 1.44 MB 3.5" floppy (which was hard to imagine, the only time I ever saw that were the seven installer disks for Windows 3.11), you'd just use two disks!
That was maybe 20 years ago. So yes, 4K video and surround raw audio files can be streamed. I guess that in the future there will be no real difference between internet connections and network connections when it comes to speed.

edit:
Speaking of remembering and floppy's, I remember putting a very lightweight winamp with only mp3 and avs support on a 1.44MB disk. There was space left for 3 presets or so
This was because we weren't allowed/able to install programs at school. I then put a cd full of mp3 files on a CD and listen to music that way while working on school projects. Keeping a careful look to be sure that no teachers saw it because that shit'd get you in trouble.

I had many a happy hour listening to 16kbps talk radio streams back in the day, on my mega powerful 56k us robotics and my dazzling p133 dell laptop, it was truly amazing times, now I get a bit sniffy if my HD video streams dare to buffer for more than a nano second or two.


Remind me again at what point we suddenly got spoilt ? Odd that I should see this and be reminded about the 16kbps streams right after reading an article about one of our big isp's in the uk successfully testing a 1.4 tbps domestic broadband link...

BT, Alcatel-Lucent show 1.4Tbps fibre speeds

Thats a nice speed for super Hi Def video and quadrophonic surround sound

I hated it and yet I couldn't step away from it. For sports and/or talk, it was ok. For music it drove me crazy, because the sound quality was so horrible, and yet for some reason I kept listening anyway, because I could discover new music that way.

Don't forget to live before you die.

I remember using my 133mhz compaq for music at night. I'd just find a good stream and let it play. I feel kinda old knowing that it has been >10 years since then.

There is no sig.

10 years ago you were using a PC with a 133MHz CPU? Condolences.

I didn't have a job back then. I made due with what I had. It sufficed for Winamp back then.


I just remembered I had a 400mhz P2 back then. With like 128mb of RAM.

There is no sig.

Parts of Europe.

Here in Germany we're struggling with 3000 kbit/s connections in wide areas ...

Bumpiness...

Only 3.5 years later, my wifi signal is now officially slower than my internet speed. Although officially an 802.11n connection, I guess that my router still operates at g speeds (54 Mbps) as that's exactly the speed my network card communicates with, while my internet connection is 100 Mbps up/down.
