Hi, You gave me a very good hint.

I installed the terminus-fonts-console rpm package:
Code:
# yum install terminus-fonts-console

More about this package is found on this website

And now my console is looking great.
I have attached a screenshot.


the commands:
Code:
setfont ter-116n.psf.gz

to make permanent on reboot
Code:
echo setfont ter-116n.psf.gz >> /etc/rc.local

In Centos 6.x, the configuration file /etc/sysconfig/i18n has the facility to set the default console font at boot. Modify SYSFONT to:
Code:
SYSFONT="ter-116n"
