52/64kb/ps is norm for downloads on aol broadband.

This is quite normal, and only your connection first checking and then displaying the correct download speed. 52 is very good and approximately ten times faster than 56k dial-up modem which would, [On a good day] show a download of 4.8 to 5.2kbs. j.
