I'll just tell you about my experiences of using dial-up from about 2001 - June 2009. I still used dial-up until June 2009 when broadband came to a remote area I was living in then. Broadband was really good when it came to that area until I moved 2 months later in August 2009 to the area where broadband keeps cutting you off every 5 minutes. I did use dial-up again in about September 2011 when broadband went down but it's useless now compaired to the bigger websites we have today. When I joined Facebook in November 2008 I was struggleing to get on and it took about 15 minutes to upload my first profile picture where it took about 30 seconds to upload my last profile picture on Facebook. My Dad would only let me on for an hour as dial-up as it cost money for every minuite you were on and nobody could use the phone. In future I hope I get optic fibre which is the next generation on from broadband as everyone seems to be on that now.
