I have Wanadoo UK 1mb broadband with a 6gb download limit. The problem is with my web browsing (i use firefox), which has gone tediously slow from the super-fast i experienced when i first got broadband. I moved to firefox from IE because it is simply better but now it is going really slow at loading pages, mostly pictures which sometimes don't even appear. The strange thing is my download speed from web sites are still fast (on average about 110kb/s!!) and even limewire is fast. It definatley is not firefox that is the problem as i have switched between IE and even Opera and they are slow too. I run on a Athlon 3200xp+, 512mb Ram, Geforce 128mb Graphics card. I also use Zone alarm but the problem was there when i used sygate aswell!
