Haha....I remember when I got DSL and was loving some Napster because I could d/l an mp3 in like 3-4 minutes.
Haha, I've got you all beat. I remember my first 300 baud modem in the early 80's when all you could do was visit a BBS to chat and play simple games. That was the precursor to the Internet. I also had a friend in college that had a 9600 Baud HP modem when the highest consumer product you could purchase was a 2400. His dad worked for HP and was doing testing for military grade products, so that was pretty cool.
The cell companies will continue to push the envelope and consumers will continue to upgrade, it's just natural and it's great that we are starting to get competition. Hopefully someday the speeds will be on part with cable speeds which will hopefully keep prices low.

Me, I got a Hayes Smartmodem 1200 external modem. Cost me $400. Saved up all one summer to get it. True 1200 baud, woohoo. Of course, downloading a game on an Apple ][ was usually not more than around 150K or so.
Haha...remember text-based games?
Now that I think about it, they made a joke about that on Big Bang Theory. Except I think they are supposedly 30(?), which would have meant the text-based games were a little before their time. Of course, their geniuses so I suppose they could have been playing at 5 years old.
