My grandparents use dial-up but those are about the only one's I know of that do.
Everyone else is on a high speed connection.

I barely even heard about people using the cord for internet still, unless it's at a school or business where they still use desktops,I have 6 computers at my house and two of them are connected via cable. The rest are using the wifi. Wireless is great but it still isn't as fast as a cable so it's best to connect this way when practical.

It was considerably fast back then and for us it pretty much served us well and we were able to do all that was necessary. When broadband came up i completely forgot about dial up until i was in a place where the only option available was dial up. I had no choice but to plug in. It was a totally horrific experience. Trying to get the computer to work and load sites was a night mare. I eventually gave up in the process.Well if you really think about all that goes on behind each internet click we have no right to call it slow. Every time we click a packet is sent from our computer to your router out to another router to another router to another router until it finally reaches the other side of the country then it has to travel all the way back and display itself in your computer. That's a lot to do. We really take high speed internet for granted.

We was using it up until 2003.The only people that really use it anymore are old folks that don't really use the internet for anything more than doing a little banking two or three times a month.
