You are clearly from the millennial generation))) In 1998, there was the Internet, and not only in many Russian organizations (from experience - the media usually had 1-2 computers with Internet access at that time), but even at home the most advanced individuals)))

They connected to the Internet via a modem, which had its own number, like a telephone, and you had to dial up to the provider, wait for the connection. There was such a thing)))

But, I think, Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin had no problems with the modem and the connection.

Most likely you meant that the Internet was not a mass phenomenon then, and this is absolutely true.

Well, this is not true, the Internet appeared in the 70s, and in 1998 it was already carried out by many at home, and not only in the form of a grunting and hissing modem, but a dedicated twisted-pair network, however, the traffic restrictions were not so chic like now. 300MB per month, and overpayment is already serious. But this press conference was hardly seen by ordinary people, who was interested in it at that time?
