Open for modem humour
It's a baud joke
I remember the time when 56k Flex support at my local ISP was a big deal, then only found out that in the U.S. the maximum allowed was 44k because of the antiquated phone lines.
@andi the "time" was 1997, the same year your partner was born 😶
By 2001 consumer grade broadband (Excite @ Home) became available, which became AT&T Broadband and then became Comcast
By 2003 most of my friends no longer had landline telephone
This is the personal instance of Andi N. Fiziks. Love me or hate me it's still an obsession 😘
