@meowski@vriska i had dial up and then adsl internet but that was in 2007 or so already, and a metered connection of a few hundred megabytes. internet here came relatively late. so yeah o remember pretty well it being very slow and not being able to use it at the same time as the landline phone. if that is what you mean.
@vaartis@vriska now there are all kinds of other issues. neighbors streaming multiple 4k video streams, and providers doing sneaky stuff. i just had to switch ISPs because my dsl was doing upstream "burst throttling" and flat out denied it when i confronted them. i would get 5mb/sec for around 2 sec then it would immediately taper off to 350kb/sec
