I am using the 3G Watcher but my Air Card still runs very slow

I am using the 3G Watcher but my Air Card still runs very slow

I have installed my Sierra 875 and have installed and am running the 3G Watcher. However, the data speed is still as slow or slower than a dial up.
 
I have a few questions;
 
First, does anyone have a set of troubleshooting activities to determine what is making it run slow and find ways to fix it?
 
Second, what ISP allows the card to work at the best speeds?
 
Third, are their any other factors that can make it run very slow?
 
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Second, what ISP allows the card to work at the best speeds?  << AT&T is the only ISP this card will connect to.
 
Third, are their any other factors that can make it run very slow?  << refer to the first question.
