The modem that I'm using right now is Aztech, and the speed is only 512kb/s. I try to change the modem to my aunt's modem, that is Dlink, and the speed is much more faster than that, about 1mb/s. I am confused that why I still can use my aunt's modem although she had cut off her internet line a few months ago. I was just trying to download something by using my aunt's modem because it is faster. So, will it causes any affect? I scared it charges a lot to my bill...Hope anyone could give me some guide. Thank You !

The modem is just a device to connect your computer to a broadband telephone line. You can swap it for another one if that works faster. The billing is on the broadband line, not the modem.

You have not provided Aztech model number it could be possible that this model has lesser speed limit also the distance from the modem and other factors could be the reason for slow internet.
