You can speed up your dialing speed by going to the properties of your connection, Configure... (under your modem), Connection tab, Advanced..., and adding "S11=10" to your Extra Settings (without the quotes).

This doesn't acually speed up the dialing. It just makes the little animation cycle through quicker.
