If more than one modem, and another PC, gives slow connection, my guess would be that the problem lies in the phone line quality. What's your environment (countryside cottage or city apartment)? Do you have many devices hooked up to your phone connection (alarm circuitry, fax, wireless phone station, many phones)? In-house wiring done professionally? Do you have a line-splitter?

What is the speed you get? Did it use to be better at some point?
If the speed has gone down, without any changes in your setup, I'd call the telephone company and describe the problem.

I used to Enjoy 53.3, now at 33 or 14.4, even if it connects me at 53.3 results are like 17.7k.

From what you have stated it is defiantly the phone line! What to do about it and get results is the problem!

If you pick up the phone and call a mate and there is crackle in the sound then good! If not then I'm out. Telecom companies are required by law to provide good quality telecom services to consumers, but I'm not sure about modem connection speeds.

If it sounds good on a voice call then you are in a little trouble. Don't let on about the modem to start with, maybe ask your neighbours if any of them are experiencing problems, via modems. If so you may all be able to complain about the service.

I know this does sound very dodgy and it is but the other option is for the telecom company to tell you to go screw yourself.

Don't quote me, but that's about what I got from Telstra in Australia, I was lucky enough to move house soon after I was told.

Regards,
Chicko.

Yes, I too think a chat with the telco is called for. They may have been doing something to the exchange setup that will not be noticeable for a voice connection, but shows up on modem transfers. If possible, do as suggested above and talk to a neighbour.

Here is a couple of test sites to check your line.

Test your line at different times of the day and night and keep track of the results, it may give you a clue as to what the problem may be.
