That is in the average range for dial-up speed.
There are many applications that claim to speed up browsing (not downloading) that you might try, and I have found using either Mozilla or its stand-alone browser, Firefox, loads pages faster than IE.

Try a different dial in number. Although it may seem further the altenate number may have less of a load or better access.
