My file transfers seem awfully slow on AIM

I have a DSL yet whenever someone tries to send me a file it transfers at like 12 KB/sec. Isn't that kinda slow for DSL? And it's not the sender either because it's usually someone in a dorm on a high speed line.

I get good speed with my DSL--usually somewhere in the 600-700 range. Any way to speed up these file transfers?

If the other end is ADSL also, then he/she upload is probably only 128kbps which translates into 16KB/s. With some overhead, the speed might be 13KB/s.
