DSL was ridiculous. 20-30 minutes on and it would need to reconnect and had to disconnect to use the phone. Good times

When I started, 56k was lighting speed and bulletin boards were the thing. Pictures were absolutely unheard of. It was bit map graphics, bmp, or text. End of sentence. Period.

Worst thing was when someone called and you got disconnected. I remember I had to tell my friends and family members not to call during certain times since that was my internet time lol.
