Had this problem with tiger, is continuing with leopard. on a G5 iMac Using firefox, also does this with safari. Not much faster than dial-up Anything we can tweak in either the OS or the browser? We have charter cable and do have tv and phone also, but I just tried to download a 590kb file and it took over 2 minutes!! and that was without the tv or phone in use. We've complained to Charter but to no avail.
