The Sights & Sounds of 90s Internet

History for children not old enough to understand what the early 90's internet was like vs. Today's more advanced connection.

The internet connection, which was used with a modem that connected to your phone line (no cell phones then).

When the internet was being used, the landline phone couldn't make or receive calls (cellphones were rare then). And if the phone was being used, you couldn't get onto the internet.

90s internet was loaded with popup ads

When your done, you would disconnect from the internet and heard this.
