    There is not a lot you can do with dial-up these days, and frankly I would suggest you look into the less expensive DSL or Cable options in your area, which are probably not much more than you are paying.

    Your download speed in any case will depend greatly on what server you are downloading from.

    For example, you can test various servers, near and far, by using an online speedtest such as >>

    Is it dial-up or is it 3G? Both are mentioned in the post, but are very different.

    3G is not the best option to download stuff. It works very well with email and Facebook and stuff like that. I am actually using 3G right now. I'm agree with Rollin' Rog, you should get an adsl if you want more speed.
