The big stash of software was Simtel20 out in White Sands Missile Range. The cheapest way to get files was through Trickle, a distributed file forwarding system. "Tell Trickle at Trearn /list" followed by a fetch that would get you the file in 24 hours. The internet was clunky, especially before DNS.
I voted with my feet and left BT because of this. During the inevitable 'why are you leaving, what can we do to change your mind' phone call I stated my reason as 'you can't give me IPv6'. The reply was 'I don't know that channel'. I'm going to be kind and think that they heard ITV6.
