What is your Broadband Speed

OK Folks what is your Broadband Speed right now?

I've just upgraded my connection from a 50MB download speed for a Fibre Optic connection with with these speeds



Its crazy to think how far Broadband has come in 20 years I was on a 1MB Download connection way back in 2002

300 down and 30 up

and yep i also started out in 2002 with 1 MB down and 512 KB up
and what a great speed it was, it didn't take all night with dial up to download a 7 minut song..... and if somebody called you the internet connection broke....... and you had to start all over again.

If I wanted to for £50 a month I could have gone for a 1GB download speed but for me that would have been overkill.

As for downloading stuff via Dial Up yep it was a pain... was paying 1p a minute for dial up (AOL & Freeserve)


Back in 1999/2000 I found a tool that helped download mp3 files when I was on dial-up it would continue again after the connection reset after 2 hours.. Don't know if you remember Audiogalaxy

nope , was glad to find Napster and besides that software all my Win 95 could handle was Winamp to play my downloaded songs......
anything else won't run on my very crappy computer that i build myself besides Wolf3d
After i got broadband internet i got a better and new computer.

I was a Windows 98 user at the time I was using audiogalaxy....

The PC was my then partners & it was painfully slow and crashed a lot.

My first PC had 512MB of RAM installed and ran XP (Badly)

I bought a 32GB machine last year and its collecting dust in the spare room the VGA port has blown waiting to get it in for repair.
