Could this result in slow uploading browser pages, slow redirects on linked messages and messages like "connection to the server was interrupted while page was loading?"

Yes, to all four questions. Dial-up would be excruciating slow for today's internet.

(BTW, browser pages are usually downloaded, not uploaded. Data coming down to your computer from the internet is downloading, data going up from your computer to the internet is uploading).
