      BT Broadband was introduced in 2000. 39.99 a month for 512K ADSL (ouch).
      IPStream Home 1000 was trialled in 2003 and launched in 2004. Trials for IPStream Home 2000 came later that year

      My point is: Broadband was much faster back then because less people had computers.
      Wrong. Speeds are restricted because of contention ratios. Most early connections were at the same 50:1 ratio for home users as Sky Connect uses today. There was far less network capacity than there is now - the broadband 'pipes' just weren't there.

      PS It's fewer people, not less.
