if you are running a 512k modem it is time for an upgrade. Sadly 512k is considered slow nowadays... Most of the users are running well over 1.5mbs on theses forums. Umm...my guess is that you speed has been upgraded since you orginally got the service so you are not receiving all of the bandwidth that you could be getting.
