I am with bigpond (australia) and am paying for a 30mps cable plan with 500gb per month. For some reason when I download something I am getting around .5 to 1.5 mps

More about : download speed slow

Are you sure you are looking at the mega bits (b) per second, and not mega bytes (B) per second? 1.5 MBps would be about 12Mbps, which is a great download speed considering that may times you are limited by the server on the other end.

Just to clarify chrissymoe's comment: If you are using torrent software, then forwarding the proper ports to your PC will greatly increase the download speed.
