    Use a good download manager. Internet Download Manager (IDM), Free Download Manager (FDM) or Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) will do.

    .Please check this web site and related links.

    How to Increase Browser Download Speed | eHow.com

    A website has links to different web sites popups flash, video etc
    Usually 40% to 50% data used by the links,.
    You can use FireFox with addons to block advts/flash/video content
    to speed up downloading .
    Test in both conditions and give feedback.

    2. Use tcp/ip optimiser from speeedguide.net to tweak settings

    It really depends on the server you are downloading from.
    Well seeded torrents will typically have a very high availability so you will always get really high speeds.

    Make sure you don't have any proxies enabled in firefox (tools->options->advanced)

    Try a different browser like opera/chrome and see if you get similar speeds; if you do it's most likely a server issue (basically the place you're downloading from doesn't have a good upload rate).

    And yes, download managers will probably give you better speeds.
