PPP-connection slowing down. Please help!

When I use the Linux box, my ppp-connection is becoming so slow that I have
difficulty in handling a few email messages.  I cannot think of ftp or other
internet services.

Ping produces the following results (only while using Linux.  On winsock
{windows 3.1} the average is about 232ms with no packet loss):

PING ilink.nis.za ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=252 time=246.0 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=252 time=562.2 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=252 time=378.8 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=252 time=240.4 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=252 time=1009.5 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=15 ttl=252 time=5592.6 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=31 ttl=252 time=11225.2 ms

--- ilink.nis.za ping statistics ---
43 packets transmitted, 32 packets received, 25% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 240.4/5948.1/11441.9 ms

Sometimes the packet loss go up to 60%

I used the same configuration for a few weeks now, but it was only the last
few days this behaviour became a nuisance.

Can it be the telephone line?  Why does it work without problems on Windows 3.1?

Any hints?
