    at 64k and 128k those speeds are about correct...for example

    128k=128,000 bits

    divide 128,000 by 8 (128,000/8) and you get 16,000 Bytes...which is 16Kbps...

    So 16Kbps is the highest you can get on a 128k isdn line...once you add in TCP overhead that accounts for only get 13k..sorry man, thats your max
