How old were you when your family got internet?

Just curious about how old you were when the internet first entered your household.

I was 7 when we first subscribed to AOL and got my first email address, I can still remember the sound the dial up made. I was about 10 or 11 when we finally ditched that for MSN, and created my oldest email that still exists but I never use except to regain access to my current ones when they bork up.

Dunno. Young. 3 or 4 probably? Doesn't matter though because I wasn't allowed to play online anyway, and when we got a new family computer and my dad gave me the old one, he made sure I couldn't access the internet on it. Wasn't allowed to really use the internet until school started requiring it when I was like 10 or 11.

I would have been about 8 or 9 probably. I still remember getting online after school to play flash games online. I didn't end up getting a smartphone and really branching out online until I was about 15.

I was about 4 and my family had a Windows 98 desktop. I used to look up Zelda guides online to help with OOT.

Oh I remember that distinctively. My family got internet way back in the Windows 95 days, back during the days of broadband. I remember being 4 or 5 years old using Netscape Navigator to surf this new-fangled thing called the internet.
