I watched the graphic load just now. Top half was very quick, but then it crawled loading the lower part. Took on the order of just under 30 seconds to finish all of it. That was while everything else was loading though (some forum graphics and avatars).
My connection today is reporting 37.2Kbps, which is up on what I've been getting over past months - but that figure should be impossible according to what the phone technician told me a few weeks ago (due to the length of line and it being a pair gain, roughly 28 should be the maximum. The sync speed it shows may not be accurate to the actual connection).
