Hello EE, 1st Q..
And hopefully my stay here is an enjoyable one.

To the Q.
What strategy's can be done to increase upload speeds?
I ask this as I'm a serious gamer and have had a clan member recently get his ISP to enable AnnexM for him, and is currently getting heightened hit registration due to increased upload speed. (Battlefield BC2 FPS)  
I'm going to ring my ISP tomorrow and find out if it's available for me also.

But is there any other ways to increase upload speed?

    I believe you are doing all that you can from the ISP perspective... it is all in your agreement/contract with the ISP you choose.  Bottom line, it is $$ and your ISP's offerring.

    Of course there may be in-game tweaks or network things to consider  that might help.  Just found a few discussions that might provide some helpful info....

    some ISP's can handle traffic better than others (especially at peak times) regardless of what speed you are supposed to get, first make sure your ISP has the capacity and isn't applying any traffic shaping to you. Then call them and ask them how fast they can provide and get wallet out.
