Using AOL broadband win98SE BT voyager 100
I have noticed that certain web pages load just as slow as when I was using standard connection.
This site is slow on broadband.
Does anyone else have the same experience

Downloaded Opera and it does actualy work quicker.

Did the test and this is what it came up with.
Is it within acceptable norm?

Direction
Actual Speed
True Speed (estimated)

Downstream 425 Kbps (53.1 KB/sec) 459 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 237 Kbps (29.6 KB/sec) 255 Kbps (inc. overheads)

I'm not with AOL. Your speeds are OK but mine are -
Downstream 477 Kbps (59.6 KB/sec) 515 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 247 Kbps (30.9 KB/sec) 266 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Why don't you try tweaking your connection.click here for more info.

Tried the tweak, it seems to have made a substantial improvement. Thanks
