fluctuating fps/Kbps

I am connecting to the Kansas reflector via a PPP/14.4 connection and am getting
receiving rates that fluctuate wildly. I just got a 56 fps rate and a 16 Kbps.
How is this possible over such a slow modem connection, and why do the rates
vary so much? I know that one of the factors is how many other users on are on
the reflector, etc. Btw, it is going to be at least 6 months before my area
gets ISDN service, and I am still collecting reports from users who have a 28.8
connection.
