You're kidding? Man and I thought mine was slow! I've got 56k too and currently I'm at 48.0kbps, (is that good for dial up? It is ISDN though) have never actually managed to get to 56, 48kbps is the highest.
Well, I didn't hink you guys would believe me when I told you my connection speed so I'll put a screendump with it. This connection really, really, REALLY rocks and it's virtually costless. Check the screenie.
