National downloads and international ones

I have a 2MBPS internet DSL line and all my in-country download rates reach the bit rate of 250KB/Sec (with a contention ratio of 1:8)

however as soon as i try downloading anything outside India, the bit rate falls to around just 30KB/Sec

why is that happening?

i have tried downloads from every other country outside India. and they never cross 30KB/Sec?

i have disabled all fire wall settings and antivirus too recently.

  1. it should have nothing to do with your computer but probably your ISP or Government.

    have you talked to your ISP?
