Perhaps you can try a trick that I had found when I had problems uploading the 
KOffice packages. The trick is to configure .ppprc (or another ppp 
configuration file if it is more useful for you) to have:

mtu 296
mru 296

For me it had made a big difference (V.90 modem, so upload was 28.8Kbits/s 

May be you can try to *disable* PPP compression:


(as the https data cannot be compressed anymore.)

Have a nice day!
