Odd, I'm stuck on a dialup that measures in at ~24kb max.
I have no trouble loading pages - they're not blazing fast, instant like on broadband, but they're not terribly slow either.
Hear, hear. I'm on dialup at 46,600 BPS [as of this connection],
running the latest update of Firefox, and I'm not having any major trouble. Yes, page loading [not just here, but elsewhere]
could stand to be a smidge faster, but considering that I'm on 40+ year-old copper with a little bit of noise sometimes, it's not too bad.
So, sounds like something else might be going on if someone is getting really slow slow slow load times and has a connection that is 24kb-56kb and not stuck at 9600!! Maybe a virus or worm is messing wit de innards??
Could be the aforementioned noise. When that on my line really acts up, my modem will try to connect as low as 24K or less.
PS. just tried "wap2" - geez that is fast!! takes ya instantly back 20 years on the internet in an instant!! Heh heh...
Got that right. Now, if it could only take the body
back twenty years...
