IE8, Dial-up & “time-outs”

When my internet speed gets shaped back to dial-up speeds IE8 keeps timing
out on many pages. I expect pages to load slowly but some time out really
quickly. Sometimes it times out within about 5 seconds.

I have problems with facebook, mainly when opening many tabs at once. I
just get the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error page.
Sometimes it will load after a few refreshes. What is annoying is when the
page appears to be loaded but then jumps to the "Internet Explorer cannot
display the webpage" page. The pages begin to load and then it suddenly
jumps to the error page.

It’s not just facebook, many pages fail to load when the bandwidth is put
under stress.

Any one else having this problem? I’m running Vista sp2.
