Way to compress packet size for less network usage?

I'm asking because I only have a 758 kbps upload speed network avaible on my area, and a 4096 kbps download.

You could implement a compression algorithm on the packet send/receive messages, but I doubt you would get much smaller for most packets, only full tile updates with lots of items would get smaller, the others would actually probably get larger due to how small they are to start with.

So, you could try, but you probably won't get enough of a difference to matter in my opinion.
