The Internet Timeline in Japan

JPNIC published “The Internet Timeline” (Japanese version is also there).

My first contact with the Internet was about 20 years ago. I was a Universal student. The University had 64kbps bandwidth, it was really slow.

Nowerday, I have 128kbps mobile network with 950 yen/month. It is usable for some use case, like text messaging.

 

Update 2013/12/14

Nowaday, the mobile internet service is improved, so I can use 30+Mbps LTE connection with 500MB/month limitation, and if I reached the limitation, I can access with 200Kbps speed limitation.

  1. Oh, quite expencive. :o

    In Finland I have a 3G mobile Internet contract with max speed of 21Mbps with 13 Euros per month (that seems to be about 1700 yen at todays rate).

  2. Well, I wouldn’t know how are the other costs in your country, so that might not be that expencive after all. :)
