How Many Times A Week Does The Milkman Visit Your Home?

Really?

I wonder why they left off 300, 1200, 2400, and 9600 baud.

Seriously, it looks like broadband penetration is at about 57% right now, but it’s 90% among active internet users, which should mean that only about 1 of 10 people who see this question are actually using dialup. Is it really that important to know exactly which speed dialup they have?

I also suspect there would be a STRONG correlation between using dialup and having absolutely no idea what speed you’re connecting at, but that could be wrong.

BTW, further down the list, you’ll notice ISDN listed. ISDN never really took off in the US, being both slow and expensive, and I think if you’re going to list that as a separate choice, you may as well include X.25 and frame relay while you’re at it.
