History of modems – since 1943 until 2011 [infographic]

Specboy posted an interesting infographic made by Broadband Choices in which I found out that the first modems were used in 1943 and, of course, were for military use only. From 25 bits per second in 1943 (Teletype Modems), to 1kbp in 1981 (Hayes Smartmodem), to 56kbps modem in 1998 and finally to real 4G (100Mbps) for wireless communications in 2012 and beyond the infographic from below outlines their importance and gives interesting factoids. A real keeper, let me say this 😀 Enjoy the history of modems.
