    what speed are you connecting with ?

    Most likely limited by your ISP. You can't go faster, than what they give you to use.

    The theoretical top speed for dialup is 56K although I have never met anyone who has achieved that.
    As soon as a signal leaves the modem it is subject to resistance in the telephone wiring and other factors such as line noise.
    Even if the line is prestine the load on your ISP's servers, the current traffic to and from sites affect the overall speed.
    Some ISP's promise faster speeds than 56K. This is a myth really as what they do is cache popular sites.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
