So are you using your Samsung cellular phone as your modem?

if your getting your brodband down a cell phone then there's your problem, if you had 8meg connection & your pc was a top spec computer then the speeds would be the same as you have now,,,,, the bottle neck is the cell phone,,, broadband works best with a copper cable & fiber optic cable,,,,ie hard wiered phone lines.

A download manager breaks up the file and downloads the file from different sources, using one would help, but only slightly. Probably the best way to describe it would be a bottle filled with liquid, turned upside down the liquid flowing out will be limited by the neck.

It is true in a sence that computers learn; they use a process called prefetching which stores recently used information so that the system can load a program into memory. an example of this would be that the first time you load a media player it will take (depending on a lot of things) 4-5 seconds, the computer remembers what you have done sothe next time you load the player it will load it it 2-3 seconds.
This is really a balancing act as after a while the prefetcher is swamped with information that it will probably never need and will need to be cleaned. some people may disagree with this though.
Even so, your internet speed is mainly down to the ISP and connection medium.

Trust me, patience is the key with slow internet. Try downloading iTunes + quicktime which is a 56MB download and my top download speed for it was 3KBs. You do the math.
If you want to watch you tube videos though. may I suggest downloading them? Just get yourself a FLV player, use a youtube downloading site and you're good to go.
Thats what I do.
Like I said though, patience is the key
