Re: IA Century Link Faster Speeds? "Remote" means that your dsl service comes from a remote terminal instead of the central office (CO). Since dsl speeds are limited by the distance from their source (remote terminal or central office), having that source closer to you, i.e. remote terminal, will allow you to get higher speeds.
Typically the new remote terminals are "fed" by fiber optic lines so dsl downloads speeds of 40 or 20 are possible if you are close enough to the remote terminal.
Simplest thing to do is ask one of the CL workers what they are installing and when it will be or if it is already working.
