As you've found the download speeds from different sites are different. That's why when you download something enormous (like a Linux package) they offer a choice of download sources.

Torrents are links with other users (thus the great danger of picking up malware). As most are on ADSL (the A stands for Asymetric) the upload speed from their machines will be considerably lower than the download speed.
