An LT Win modem in a win98SE P3 system with 48 MB of Ram has slowed from its rated 56K to consistently 12K or 14.4K. I have tried reinstalling the modem, updating the driver, scandisk and defrag all without success. Also checked for viruses.

Have you added any new devices to your phone line lately?

Go to testmyspeed.com then choose new zealand,soho systems and try a download test.This will give your data tranfer speed(the important one) rather than your connection speed.If you have access to a laptop try that.If this also has low data transfer rates ring telecom.There is an $81:00 charge if it proves to be yoyr pc.

Anothony a line test from Telecom is completely free. It's only when you get them around to your house htat it costs.
