I can remember being ecstatic to see my Zmodem transfer hit 4096 bytes (32 kilobit, although I don't recall referring to it in "bit" terms back then).

Now I'm agonizing over my 3.5MB (25Mb-ish) transfers that are almost 1000x faster. And legitimately so - my 25Mb terrestrial wireless connection sucks by today's standards (but it's the best I can get right now out here in the country).

A new company is at this moment laying fiber in front of my house, though, so things are going to get crazy.
