The pain was real. I remember first seeing a cable modem operate at the “blazing fast” speeds of 3megs. That was back 2000-2001, I think. It was such an inconceivable speed at the time.
I first had 1mb+ service around the same time, with DSL/WiFi/Cable pretty much ever since, nothing less than 3megs. Today I have 300-450 meg service.
