Slow 512 Broadband

  barrie1775 20:46 04 Apr 2005

I have just started using Homecall BB. I seem to be getting slow page to page refresh. Downloading is at a reasonable rate between 30 and 60Kbs depending on the time of day.
Is this problem related to running on an older system.
I have a Compaq Presario 7477 with AMD K62 533MHz CPU and 312 RAM. Using Win98 SE OS.

The page refresh can be slow on any site you visit depending on how busy the site is.Unless the page you are loading contains a lot of large graphics you might not even notice much improvement over dialup.Having recently switched to broadband on a 1mb connection I am finding the same myself.

Your download speed looks fine.

Having an older pc won't make any difference to page loading times.

Thanks gudgulf.
Must say not very impressed with the time it is taking but happy that download times have now been reduced.
Thanks again.
