You can call you Phone company & see if they offer ISDN connection

or of corse get cable or DSL

& you might chek too see that you have a fast modem some older modems are not up too snuff

Sounds like its the host your joining.

Be sure to keep skin dls off
if your in a game and it starts warping alot go to network
connection and try moving it up to cable dsl its always on 14.4 no matter what.
In HL you can disable aping.exe which seems to add 20-100 to your ping for some reason.

the game seems to run better for 56k I noticed too, I have broadban on my good comp and on my old comp I have 56k and dont get as much warp. Its something with the netcoding thats screwed.

Just keep trying different servers takes awhile to find a good one but when you do you will notice its very smooth and shots go where they suppost to

I have had occasional trouble with my cable modem - all download speeds dropped to 1/6 what it should be..
but rebooting the modem sorted it
