In other words your download speed is close to the maximum if you get about 800 KBps download speed. A completely other question is could you get higher line speed. Not knowing how fast your line is, for what UL/DL speed you are paying for, I would say the only thing you can do is to pay for a faster line. The speedtest.net results you posted seem to suggest you have maybe 8 of 10 Mbps bandwidth (line speed); if so, you are getting quite normal speed out of it for no line is always as fast as promised.
Let's try once again: if you pay for a 10 Mbps line, your theoretical maximum download speed is 1280 KBps. If you pay for 8 Mbps line, the theoretical maximum download speed is 1024 KBps.
You need to understand that your speedtest result, 6.67 Mbps equals 853.76 KBps ergo with 6.67 Mbps connection you can not download faster than that.
One more example. This is what Speedtest gives me at the moment her at the office:
Currently I have 30.9 Mbps. Notice that it is told in Megabits (Mb) per second, not Megabytes (MB); small b = bit and capital B = byte. That 30.9 Megabits per second = 3.86 Megabytes per second = 3955 Kilobytes per second (KBps).
The same with your speedtest results:
6.67 Megabits per second = 0.83 Megabytes per second = 853.76 Kilobytes per second. That's all your connection gives.

There are quite a few things you do to speed up a wireless connection speeds. This doesn't mean it will make your ISP go faster. There are some adjustments you can make to obtain the maximum wireless speed possible for your particular hardware.
The speed for wireless is really determined by the available bandwidth and the bandwidth is determined by the available wireless channels in your area. Using channel bonding with the correct router settings can give you the best possible wireless speeds.
300Mbps is possible with most wireless N USB adaptors but only if you set the router up correctly and have 5 bars signal strength. The link below talks about how to obtain the best possible wireless speeds.
