    4G on my phone consistently clocks in at 25-30Mbps down and 12 up. Perhaps time to look into some sort of 4G router or tethering solution.....

    Finally upgraded to 50mbit. The tech just dropped off a new the modem and I was surprised that I didn't need a bonded connection. Now of course I'm wondering if I can upgrade to bonded 100 :D

    I remember coveting my brother's 128k dual-channel ISDN while on my lowly 56k modem that was lucky to ever hit 46k, my current speeds would be unimaginable back then! :jawdrop:

    BT Infinity 4 330/30; rock solid, great ping and get this speed all day and all night.
    It's been hinted that this will increase to 360/60 later this year to ensure that Infinity 4 FTTP remains significantly superior to the 'UltraFast' G.Fast FTTC offering of 314Mbps, which will be nice!

    Wish I lived in a place served by Hyperoptic, but still 1 percenter cheesecake!

    Haha puts things in perspective, doesn't it? I remember having to wait for images to load... like up to a minute for one lousy JPEG file.

    I remember paying a monthly fee for an ISP and then having to pay for the phone calls that my modem made when I actually wanted to connect.
    I remember not having a monthly fee and just paying for the phone calls.
    I remember the first "free" ISPs - ones with no monthly fee and no call charges - and dodging my way around their pitiful attempts at installing ad banners.
    I remember having to use software that could resume downloads, in case my connection dropped mid-way through a 3MB MP3 file.
    I remember creating auto-dialling scripts to re-dial my modem and re-connect my IRC session when the 60-minute max connection time kicked in.
    I remember 33.6k modems being the most advanced technology you could think of.

    I sound like a cranky old f', but I'm only 36! :p

    Yep I remember all of this, especially loss of connection (often brought about by angry home-owners wanting to use the telephone...). Do you remember the golden age of P2P with Napster? I remember when they got shut down and I tried all the alternatives over a period of several years... eDonkey, eMule, BearShare, Kazaa. Oh, the memories!

    Before Napster, you could just Google (I'm using that as a verb of course, because Google as a search engine was not a thing, you would have probably been using Altavista to do your Googling) for music and download it from a variety of websites in various qualities and formats.

    I... erm... knew a kid... that saved up months and months worth of pocketmoney to buy a CD burner (a $500, single speed CD burner) and a bunch of spindles of blanks, downloaded popular albums overnight and used to sell CDs to his classmates for a fiver a pop. O-G music piracy.
