Internet world 20 years ago !
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: 35 to 40 million people linked together through the internet !
In January 1996 there were only 100,000 websites. The Rogers' cable home Internet network was first launched on November 28, 1995 and was available to about 16,000 homes. They advertise the Wave is up to (that favoured phrase of advertising scoundrels) 100 times faster than an ordinary modem. However, what was then speed of an ordinary modem, 300 baud? Thus sometimes at mind bogling 30 000 bps download had been possible 20 years ago ! Today, ordinary speed is 30Mbps. In the next 20 years possible 30 Gbps ??
