The only way to improve is to make sure your ISP has the latest modem standard and that your access number is for the higher speed modem banks.

Avoid AOL at all costs! same goes for Wal-Mart connect. Try to get an ISP that can provide good service.

You cant really do anything. You can mess with your BAUD but most ISPs have that capped anyways.

There's your problem.

You could search the net for other ISP's in your area. AOL is a bloated, stinking, POS. :turd:

Have you tried NetZero? NetZero was pretty good in the days when I used dial up (3 years ago lol). Can you at least get DSL? DSL still uses a telephone line at are only a tiny bit more expensive (cheapest I've seen was $20 per month for DSL, and $10 per month for dial up).
post #9 of 17
I'm only paying 15.99 a month for DSL, through SBC. I got the slower of the two packages only because they didn't have the faster service in my area. But it still kicks the crap out of dial-up.
post #10 of 17
and please dont pay anything for dial up you can get it for free. just find a free trial offer and tell em your switching to a competeter when the times up it usely works. i got about a years free service from people pc
