Do you remember the days of dial-up internet?

Watch what it's like to use dial-up internet.

Today, we wanted to share with you memories from the good ol’ days of dial-up internet. Ever heard of it? To most of us, dial-up is a thing of the past, although to this day there are still some people that have chosen to stick – or are stuck – with it.

For those of you unfamiliar with it, dial-up access requires a computer, a landline phone and a modem. Connecting could be a long, tedious process and dropping the connection was a frequent issue.

Whether you’ve heard of dial-up or it’s new to you, this video by Richie Rich may make you nostalgic for the past. I especially love the “lap computer” used in the video.  While you’re watching, make sure to check out the awesome Norwegian fjord!

Share your memories of using dial-up, we’d love to hear them!
