Am I being naive or is it possible that AOL has slowed down the internet connection by modem users.
I have a pentium 4, 1.8GB, 512 memory and an £80 modem bought last September.
Never had a problem until a few weeks ago when, it seems, everyone and their dog started to encourage us to switch to broadband, with AOL being by far the most aggressive.
I really noticed it when I had trouble with direct x and downloaded it again. In September it took 42mins.( I know because I had my oven timer on) Yesterday morning it took 1hr and 13mins to download the same programme. I downloaded three more progs with the same result. I always download early a.m. to miss the US traffic.
