Internet Speed Prob

Because the speed also depends on how fast the site you download from is. For the www.speedtest.net and similar it's always almost at the maximum possible for your line because they are using very small packets of data and they send them as fast as they can.
When you download something the packets are much larger and your line can't get them faster. There are some download managers that are capable to trick your line into thinking there are multiple downloads at the same time when in reality there's only one - so you will get a faster download speed - but very few sites support them. In the end, even with one of them, if your line is slow you wouldn't get too much speed increase. 
Just try it and see.
