Slow Uploads

I’m currently uploading my high-res USA images to flickr, and it’s taking a very long time. I’m stuck on 128kb/s upload here, despite the much faster download speed. Does anybody have any cunning suggestions for how I could upload 900mb of images? Do libraries have faster connections or something? I’ve found that the most efficient method is to send them via email, but unfortunately I can’t find an email program that can limit the bandwidth, so every time I send anything my connection grinds to a halt. Limiting it would let me trickle the photos continuously, which would probably work quite well. Anybody know of any free email programs that allow this?
