I rebuilt a couple of Dell PC's for friends.
DX-2, 66mhz, 32mb ram, 1mb video, 56k modem.
Ran well! Newer PC's could not do better except for Video (4mb Vram).
System Mechanic, www.iolo.com, 30 day trial: last tab Internet, internet boost and diagnostic showing you a real time graph of upload and download speeds.
Sattelite Internet (Direct TV ?). $$$. Be sure it is sattelite upload as well as download. Older ones had phone line upload. About $600-$1000 installed. $30/mo.
Cable TV/hispeed? $$$
Wireless cellphone internet, way $$$.
