I live in the woods, but we have fast internet. Some people have dial up, but not many even have Internet. I'll put it like this, my neighbors are one strange guy, one small family (father, mother, kid, two dogs), or hunting camps. Mostly hunting camps. Or idiots from the Detroit area, or somewhere down there... They're very annoying. So, pretty tiney here.
Also, I've noticed here in my own little town in Indiana, that the old ladies with no use for the internet get 3MB connections while I'm physically stuck with some low end DSL with 350ms lag to the next state over. And this phenomenon in CONSTANT.
Since you're 15 years old, I'm going to assume you've never used dial-up internet before. 56K is the fastest dial-up internet connection. It uses up your phone line when you're online, which is why DSL and cable are an improvement, because while DSL uses your phone line, neither tech prevents you from making and receiving phone calls (which dial-up does, if you didn't catch that).
56K is NOT the same as 56 kiloBYTES per second. It's 56 kiloBITS per second. That's a maximum download speed of 7 kilobytes per second, but typically you'd get more like 3-5 kilobytes per second.
VERY VERY SLOW by today's standards, however some areas of the world/country/etc don't have access to broadband internet (dsl/cable) and thus ONLY have access to dial-up connectivity.
