I don't believe there is much you can do to increase the speed provided by your ISP. You could get cable instead; it tends to be faster, but not in all areas.

hopefully some verizon users will show up - in the meantime, you can check out the
Tweaks forum at BroadbandReports (aka DSLReports) and/or the Verizon forum (on the same site) for some advice

No surprise - I like BBR (links above) and i strongly do not recommend speedguide and some of the other places on the internet - their 'patches' may seem to work, but often they'll fill your registry with useless or even harmful (to connection speed) values - and some are painful to undo

no need to [email protected] or do anything untoward to your modem
- make sure your registry settings are maximized instead of windows default
- phone filters etc in place

ultimely though it will depend on your distance from the CO but hopefully you'll be able to get the 80% or better of advertised speed

ps - i have, and love!, cable but that's not the question here ;)
