[CenturyTel] Can I get faster service in my Area? Tech thinks s

My max speed avail per Centurylink is 1.5mb but the installer said I am really close to the CO and I should be able to get great speeds.

Is there any way to verify this on my end? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Your attenuation numbers are quite low, which indicate you are fairly close to the DSLAM and could get much higher speeds. However, the limitation is how your DSLAM is fed. It's probably just a couple bonded T1's, and not fiber, since they only offer 1.5mb.

Call tech support @ 1-800-809-1410 and have them run the availability tool on you phone number or address. It will tell you all the services that are available to you.

I makes no difference if you are next to the CO. What you get is tied to the equipment in the office and the overhead. You might be able to pull 2/1 but you can't because of the overhead. It's the same reason .75 is considered 1Mb and not the 3/4 it really is.

It probably won't get much better until and when they upgrade your area. Rural America is not any place any telephone company wants to server.
