Dialup Speed

How fast should the download speed of a 56k dialup connection be? (WinXP, Dell laptop if that matters.)

The max that its get while downloading files is 4kbs/sec, but someone told me it should be going a little faster than that. (And yes, that's one file at a time, not viewing webpages and running an assload of programs while downloading.)

If that's not normal, what would be causing it to go so slow? I have a great virus scanner and anti-spyware programs, and I recently reformated my computer, so it's not that.
