i cant find an ISP in my area that offers faster than 3Mbps...would getting a VPN speed things up for me, or at least maximize the use of that 3 megs.

3Mbps is lousy?
Some people live in areas where a 512k connection is considered a luxury. You live in the middle of nowhere and you have no chance of any broadband at all.
Anyway broadband speeds are pretty much dependent on where you live, your phone connections, infrastructure and so on. Most likely it's an up to <insert speed> package so you wouldn't get the full speed anyway.

Have you tried removing the bell wire (if your in the UK) This could increase the speed by upto 2mb?

This only works if the provider is offering a fast enough speed in the first place AND it's not causing any interference as thing stand.
The OP suggests providers in his area only offer a certain speed which means the wiring in the house is at this point completely irrelevant, but thank you for your post anyway.
