I'm currently staying somewhere with very ropey internet. I get 30Kb/sec at best using the speed test/downloading files, etc, often less.
However, when I test downloading something using multiple connections (like a torrent/from usenet) I can get 350Kb/sec consistently.
Reasonable bandwidth therefore is clearly there, but I can't take advantage of it. Even listening to internet radio is extremely frustrating at present.
I don't have access to the modem unfortunately, but is there anything I can do to improve matters?
I'm using OS X and an iPhone/iPad.
