LOL, Interesting. How fast is morse code? I'm guessing the "baud rate" would be somewhere between 10 and 30 bps (encoded/compressed) That was the first "Internet".

When did the Titanic sink? They were still using morse code at that time, although it was wireless....

Wow 60 years without a speed increase in "the Internet". That must have sucked although going wireless must have been a big boom especially for maritime applications.
