Speed up Centurytel DSL?


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody. I Just recently moved to a smaller town and had to downgrade my internet. I use to have Mediacom cable and had a 5mb download speed but the only thing out here is Centurytel DSL. My question is, i've looked around and tried to find a way to speed up my connection a bit. Here's my download test....

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 2949 Kbps about 2.95 Mbps (tested with 1496 kB)

Download Speed is:: 360 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net  (Server 1)

Test Time:: 2006/06/02 - 11:58am

Bottom Line:: 51X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 2.84 sec

Tested from a 1496 kB file and took 4.156 seconds to complete

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/1.5.0.4

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 91.37 % faster than the average for host (centurytel.net)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-G9FTL3OSX

And my upload test....

:::.. Upload Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 527 Kbps about 0.53 Mbps (tested with 1013 kB)

Upload Speed is:: 64 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net  (Server 1)

Test Time:: 2006/06/02 - 12:01pm

Bottom Line:: 9X faster than 56K 1MB Upload in 16 sec

Tested from a 1013 kB file and took 15.75072 seconds to complete

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060508 Firefox/1.5.0.4

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 122.36 % faster than the average for host (centurytel.net)

I don't understand all the kbps and kB/s and Mbps stuff so i could just be misunderstanding all this. when i go to the DSL router address it gives me this...

DSL Connect Rate (Down/Up)    3584 KBits/Sec by 608 KBits/Sec

Maybe somebody could clear this up for me and let me know if I'm at my max or if there's anything i can do to speed it up a bit? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
