40. None of those were the "internet"

They were basically walled garden paid gardens, but we called them BBS's. They later added internet access, but internet was separate.

I've been on the Internet since late 80's. And used free BBS and paid BBS (the services you spoke of) since the early 80's.
I've never paid a per minute fee for Internet. Ever.

Net Neutrality is a good thing and we need it, but this isn't the argument.
