IMHO the bottleneck is likely the link speed and nature of the connection.
You probably are using SLIP or PPP connection with a 14.4 modem with Van
Jacobson compression, thereby getting 38,800 to 56,000 bps.   Such a setup
is slow for a browser platform; it must be excrutiating for those who
browsing a server running under those conditions.  The bottom line for the
provider (as well as the browser) is that you can't have enough bandwidth
from the Internet to your PC.  At the least get a 28.8 V34 modem (NOT VFC)
and V34 service from your Internet Service Provider.

There are no accidents, just unintended consequences.
