It sounds like you are running an internet accelerator. If so, deactivate it. They work by caching web pages and compressing graphics, thus giving you poor graphics quality on the internet.

What Brushmaster1 is referring to is those ISP's that claim to give your computer up to 5 times faster speed with a 56K connection. There is no speed increase. You're fooled into thinking there is because the websites you previously visited are saved in lower graphic quality to speed up their reloading. 56K is 56K. About the fastest speed you'll get is 53,000 bps.
