Kalgatha do you still have dial up ?!
Well, dial up is quite slow, especially when the bandwidth is taking up just by interacting with a server
My best best is to get broadband of some sort, DSL is quite cheap but Cable i would recommend by far

You prolly have people around you using the same connection, thus slowing it down. Besides, dial up is always slow... I have dsl and I get download speeds of over 150 k/s. I have 1.2mbs page load speed... way faster than dial up. I used to have it (netzero) and it sucked. I know the sbc is having a special of 14.95 a month for a year for dsl... quite a deal. netzero's DIAL UP is 14.95 (they're NEW technology) yeah, right.... lol.

here's my stuff...

Netzero charges $14.95 for high speed dial up. Here comes SBC Yahoo DSL offering their broadband internet for the same price of $14.95 for like the first year, I think. Pretty good deal.

You must have a bad quality line, that can cause slow speeds

Is it only connecting at 26.4Kbps or is it only downloading at 26.4Kbps? Because Downloading it will rarely go much faster than that on a 56k anyway.

Hmmm... that is odd... have you talked to your provider about it?

It could just be where you are though. In which case, even Broadband won't help you.
