I have the same situation.  
My current connection is to a modem-pool and once in a while the
throughput is fairly good, but average is around .3K/sec.  I thought
it was something with the way the modems work on their end.

Previously I was connected to the university here (also a modem pool)
and throughput was consistantly 2 - 3 K/sec.  Same modem on my end,
same system. 
Interesting question...
