It does not come to us as DSL, it is a true T1 and I can upload the true
1.54megs, I watch it happen all day in and out.

If your T1 comes to you as DSL then it's probably an asynchronous 
connection - you're not going to get 1.544Mbps upstream bandwith. In my 
experience, providers ususally limit this to 512kbps.
