No dial up, instant connection...fast connection, average d/l of 60kb/s, i tell ya once you get bruadband your whole perseption of the internet changes.
Yes, I suppose you would gain a new perspective on the internet. So many new decisions, like "Maybe I'll get some pornography today" Or "I think I'll get pornography" Or maybe even "Are you up for pornography? I know I am!" Stuff like that. It really makes you rexamine the internet.
