The first internet service I experience when I was on a computer was Dial-up which was the greatest at that time. Which service was available at your time?

I was on a bunch of local BBSes for a few years. It was fun and mysterious and awesome. If you know what I mean, I highly recommend the BBS Documentary (http://www.bbsdocumentary.com/)

Internet wise I first had AOL (yeah) I think it was version 2.0 and was after I tried the FIVE free hours. I went over my hours a few times and remember I had some explaining to do to my parents.

I wouldn't trade those days for anything. The internet was so fun then.

Dial up with America Online. This was back when AOL was the popular online service that was easy to use for beginners.

My first internet connection was back in 1995, the state-owned VSNL (Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited) started 64 kbps dial-up connections in Bangalore, India.

In 1999, I hooked up to another state-owned service provider for my company - a 64kbps ISDN connection.

I had AOL back then in the mid to late 90s, my dad used to pay a fortune, I was online all the time! Then in the 2000s, we moved and changed to Time Warners' Road Runner. That is what I use today.

The first ISP I used was MSN Internet Access, which was dial-up. It's kinda funny how there wasn't much content in web sites back then so the slow speeds weren't that bad except when downloading programs. Lol, I remember waiting 30 minutes just to download a 3 MB game program from Cartoon Network's web site. xD

Oh my, I had AOL when they were getting started. They were the first in my area and long distance charges were outrageous. Got to love SOME of the changes time brings.

I had dial up & I used America Online because that was all that was available at the time in my area.

Obviously, Compared to current technology, The speed was slow.

Thinking back, It makes me greatly thankful & appreciative for todays high speed broadband.

I can't remember what company it was, but we had dial-up. It was amazing back then. Not so much, now.
