[CenturyTel] CL Upload is 1.3% of connection speed

I've had Century Link for a while now but only recently have I taken notice of my upload speeds. I manage a website and while I was uploading content using FileZilla FTP I noticed that all my uploads where running at only 12Kbps. My modem is telling me that my upload connection speed is 896Kbps. I know that dsl will never run as fast as the connection speed but this is far slower then what I believe to be acceptable. It works out to about 1.3% of connection speed.




The server is in the same city. Less then 10 miles from my house.

Is this typical for CL? If so I'm going to start looking at cable internet again.

The upload should be better. I have "up to" 12Mbps/ 896Kbps.
