:lmao:

It's an ancient technology our ancestors used to use to connect to the internet. Apparently some people are still stuck in the past.

Re: what is 56k about>?

56K is the speed that modems used to go at, back in the dark ages before broadband connections were prevalent.

It's usually and indication of a lot of pictures/media that would load very slowly with such a connection.
