Switch to a higher broadband.
Just because Tiscali says 2.2mbps, it does not mean you will always get that speed.

If the 2.2MB you refer to is on the connection panel, then it refers to the maximum speed of your line rather than the actual connection speed.

When I was with Tiscali it used to show 2.3MB...:-)
