Web Patches - faster loading of Web Pages?

I am using ADSL [256/128 Kbps] in Bangkok Thailand.
ISP: PPPoE.
Modem: Billion-Bipac7000
OS: WinXP Pro SP2 v.2149

I am boosting my download speed by using TCPOptimizer.
(that really boost my download speed using FlashGet by average 20 KBps)

But I am not satisfy with browsing the Internet by using IE6.
(But the local web is fast enough.)

I have found "Web Patches - faster loading of Web Pages"
(www.speedguide.net)
Descriptions as follow:
==============================================
The following patch increases Web page loading speed, by doubling the number of
possible concurrent open connections. For example, imagine a web page has 20
images and some text - in order for your browser to get all these files, it opens 2 or 4
concurrent connections, depending on the Web server. Increasing the number of
open connections allows for faster retrieving of the data. Please note that the patch
sets some values outside of the HTML specs. If you decide to install it, backup your
Registry first. Changes will take effect after you reboot. Download the patch
appropriate for your OS:
==============================================
My questions are:
1. Is those patch above will really work for me?
2. Anything else I can do for speed up download?

Thanks in advanced

*grin*  I have indeed, and my speeds show no difference.  But that does not mean that you will not.  It really depends on how you use your internet connection.  I usually only have 2 or 3 windows open at a time when browsing, but if you are downloading many pages at a time, then this may have the desired results for you.  The important thing is that I found nothing negative about the settings that caused packet fragmentation.

I would look at the registry patches that Speedguide reviews..  

http://www.speedguide.net/read_articles.php?id=157

but backup your registry first, before you do any of these hacks..  If you are not sure how, you can visit my registry guide here:

I have downloaded them and if I get a chance will test this weekend...  Again, as long as you backup your registry first, you should be fine, and they may even work...  The theory is sound.  It will place a strain on the servers you hit, but they should be able to handle it..  We shall see, shall we not..??   :)
