Re: broardband speeds
I've never found a site that can deliver more than ~ 1 Megabit per second.
When you state slow, you must quantitfy.
At this URL http://www.dslreports.com/tools you can finds speed tests,
comparisons among speeds registered by users, and lots of information about
tweaking (most tweaks give only marginal benefits.)

In what way, exactly, do they "seem slow"? The ultimate speed you see when
downloading from specific websites is as much to do with the bandwidth of
the sites themselves and the pipes between them and you as it does your own
connection with the internet, so just because you've installed a broadband
service that's, say, four times faster than your old one, there's no
guarantee that all your connections will suddenly get four times faster.
Have you tried using Broadband Speed Test, or the BT broadband speed tester
to see what your effective bandwidth actually is?
DSL connections are commonly measured in mega*bits* per second, not
megabytes, so as mentioned elsewhere, if you've confused the two, it's
hardly surprising you are somewhat disappointed.
1) This is an overclocking newsgroup, so your post, strictly speaking, is
off-topic here. You would get far better and more pertinent help looking in
places like ADSLGuide and the Broadband Resource.
2) Try some speed tests as mentioned above so that you know whether your
anecdotal impressions of the "speed" are accurate or not
3) Your name appears to be mis-spelt ("Ricard") in your Outlook Express news
