Are surfing at the time?

This will affect download speeds.

Also the site that you are downloading from maybe under heavy demand so there is nothing you can do.

Also try downlaoding in the early hours, this when the people in the US are sleeping.

What sort of files are you downloading and where from?

If for example you're using P2P software like Kazaa then you may experience very slow download speeds. If however you are downloading from a file from here you should get much faster downloads.
