Is 28.8 too slow?

I can't seem to get any Cuseeme windows to open completely when I
connect to a test reflector. I can get partial images, but there
dosen't seem to be enough packets transmitted to provide me with
info to decode.

System: 486DX2 w/28.8 modem
Internet Provider: Netcom
Connection: SLIP 28.8 w/Cuseeme compliant winsock

Is this because my connection is too slow? I can get a switched 56
or a ISDN line in my area, but is this really necessary? If I can
get 28.8 to work it would be the most economical way to communicate
with my sister at the NCSA.
