Lets see if I can get this correctly identified for you. In reality it is a combination of a lot of factors.
A dialup modem is rated at 56kbs. It will not have a speed any greater than that. In fact a Google search will show that you will not get any higher than 52kbs even though your icon may show 56kbs.
The limitations come through the condition of the phone lines. Be it in the home or the transmission lines.
I am not sure if distance from the isp is a factor if the lines are in perfect condition. I do know that if you hooked right in at the service provider then you would be getting close to the 56kbs.
If you're only connecting at 33.6k or less, your residential telephone line could be emanating from a repeater.
Hope this helps.
