I used to play Super Mario Kart, Killer Instinct, NBA Jam and a few other games for SNES over my phone line through this service called XBAND. You paid like fifteen dollars a month to play against available opponents in your area code. Did anyone else participate in this service? I loved it because there was just about no lag.

Did anyone here ever play online with XBAND?

There are some youtube videos of XBAND experiences. I thought it was so cool at the time. I used my paper route money to pay for it. I can't believe some people incurred long distance fees in order to play people outside of their area codes. I read that the creators of XBAND invested heavily in lag prevention technologies. Today's online games have much more lag than XBAND did back in the 90s.
