When I moved from Dial-up to the broadband service I now have, I saw an immediate increase in up and downloading speed. A month ago, thanks to Mike S, I doubled the RAM in my Dell Desktop from one Gig to 2 Gigs. I am amazed at how much that improved the speed of the up and down loads. The upgrade in Ram did more to increase the speed than the jump from Dial-up to Broadband.
I still get hung-up when certain AD’s open..They slow the whole process down considerably.[:(!]
