Re: [Speed] near 56k dialup speeds certain times of day Looking at the offerings for your zip does not show any D3 tiers, so you would not "need" a D3 modem.
Economy Plus - 3 Mbps / 768 Kbps
Performance Starter - 6 Mbps / 1 Mbps
Performance - 12 Mbps / 2 Mbps
Blast - 16 Mbps / 2 Mbps
If you had subscribed to the very old "Blast" tier of 8/2, you should have been upgraded to 16/2
In God we trust; all others bring data!
