have you tried getting updated drivers for your modem! usually they will speed up the modem speeds and make them perform better

Try rebooting and try it again

Have you talked to BT to test your line for faults or noise? Assuming you use BT that is.

Tell BT to check for a DACS box on the line.
They had one on my line, and it limited speed to 30kbps and kept dropping out every 1/2 hour,

keep on to BT, they are reluctant to do this (it took me a few months of complaints.
