Are you sure your fastest downloads are not 2MBps (16Mbps), not 2Mbps?

Also, you will not be able to max out your connection from most servers because they are serving many clients or they limit the download speed. I have 10Mbps cable and I rarely get faster that 5Mbps downloads, but I can easily max it out by downloading several files from different servers.
