Re: Has the internet gotten slower over the past few years
Yes, it has definitely become slower...
Certain pages can fail to load 100% if it's waiting on some damn stalled advertisement server to load. I block most advertisements with an auto updating HOSTS file and an advertisement blocker such as Ad Muncher. Creates a vast improvement on browser loading times.--
Remember that cool hidden "Graffiti Wall" here on BBR? After the name change I became the "owner", so to speak as it became: Dustyn's Wall »[Serious] RIP

As you can see by Ad Muncher, it has removed a ton of adds along with saving me close to 2.0GB of bandwidth.

Same as 1995, 24kbps download time at very very best 8 minutes per 1 meg file.
Always fearfull of cleaning internet cache meaning for example Hotmail page fully loads in up to 9 minutes.
