hey jordan, how ya doin!

Are you PPPoE or DHCP?

It looks if your running at PPPoE your about as good as your going to get.

Call verizon and ask if your on Interleave or Fastpath, if on Interleave, asked to be changed.

Go to http://www.broadbandreports.com/prequal/distance and see if you can get a distance check.

If your under 13000 call verizon and ask to be upgraded to 1.5/384

See if you can get a new firmware upgrade for your Router.

Just a little info, your download is 85% of your advertised speed, your upload is at 104% of your advertised. It looks like your line can handle more.

Hope this helps!

Call them up, ask if your are eligible and what they say your distance is. If you are eligible, ask them to upgrade you, if they give you a price over, say 29.99, ask them if you could get the price if you renewed your contract(1 year). if not, threaten to cancel and see what they do for you then. :haha:

Just ask for billing  at  the automated  voice .  The price is $29.95  if  you have Verizon Encore ($37.95 if you do not)  . You  should be available for the 1.5Mbps/384 or 768 Kbps . You will expect the change    immediately or may take up to 3 days  to receive the full amount of the service. And also  your  bill cycle  will  change  to up to  5 days earlier  than it normally arrives  and is due .

I believe if you live close to 7000 feet  , you can get the 3.0Mbps/768Kbps connection for the same price  but it is determined by your distance  from your location to the CO that will be more efficiant.

Hope this works for you  Jordan23
