I run an Orange ADSL broadband connection on a 24" iMac OSX with Leopard (using Opera or Firefox). Lately my internet browsing speed has plummeted (currently, download speed is 1918 kb/s and upload is 11 kb/s). Orange website informs me that 2MB is the maximum connection speed on my line (presumably because of BT's outdated infrastructure and distant telephone exchange). My question is whether changing my ISP to a cable broadband service is necessary to increase my connection speed, or whether there is anything else I can do to improve the efficiency of my connection? Since I am paying Orange for an 8MB service and only achieving a 1/4 of that, I must at least be able to save money by switching ISPs if unable to improve my connection.
