Making nginx "feel" faster?

Hi guys

I'm working on a mediatemple server (US) from the UK and it looks like 
there's a limit with the bandwidth from the server. Sites on that box 
are slow, whether they're dynamic or not. nginx has 8 worker threads 
(with 8 php-fastcgi threads waiting), keepalive is set to 3, static 
files are being told to cache, and gzip is enabled.

Are there any other tweaks I can do to nginx to make the responses feel 
faster? Maybe reduce the chunk size or something?
