Yessir, you can sure have a fast line and a slow server at the ISP.
I have been through several ISP's and am fortunate to have one now
that has fast, lightly loaded servers and even with a dialup
connection things fly now, compared to all my past trials.

You can tell if you have a loaded or slow server, if you get
frequent pauses or variable download rates when retrieving big ftp
downloads or images from internet sites using a browser. Occasionally
you'll get a slow download from a site due to the site sending slowly,
but generally this is not the case.

Steve: Shop for another provider. You're getting robbed of the
bandwidth you paid for with your line.
