If you aren't the one paying for the connection and the parent who does, isn't prepared to pay for a faster service there isn't a whole lot you can do about it.

By the way, there must be a router somewhere in the mix, not just a modem.
( Maybe it's a combo unit)

For this problem, contact the internet service provider,
After that check the internet speed test, through this site
It has the best results for the internet speed test and also you can download this to check my speed test regularly...........

If you're connecting your xbox wirelessly, that's the major portion of your problem right there. Connect it with a network cable and shut it's wireless off completely, you'll notice a big difference immediately.

I've said it before, I'll likely say it many, many more times. "Wireless sucks for gaming!" Actually, it sucks for any bandwidth intensive use like up/downloading large files too. The only thing it's any good for is surfing the web and checking your email.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
