What do I have to do to give CenturyLink my money?
Well, you could do what a lot of people on this board do and simply send them money without getting any service (sorry, that one sort of wrote itself).
But seriously, unless there is some development in your area that might motivate them to increase capacity (or some indication from current residents that there is a need), it might be impossible to get them to do anything.
Out of curiosity, what did you do during the period when you didn't have DSL?
