Download times consist of a large number of factors, how much bandwidth is available (and don't trust your ISP that you really have 712K available, it is probably far less), latency, how busy the server you are downloading from is, how large the file is etc.

Not sure what connection you are on.. but there are few which provide 'accelerators' .. like this one : http://www.spacenet.com/technology/advantages/ssl.html

See if you can use one of them.
Cheers.

Most ISP's throttle down the upload speed. If your download is slow, it's more likely a symptom of where your downloading from. Here is a link for a few test sites so can test your actual speed:

Welcome to BroadBand !
Your connection to the ISP = 712K

Your ISP connection to the internet = 216,000,000 BPS (hopefully). divided by the number of users at that time.

The interconnection from your ISP to the download ISP = 216,000,000 BPS (hopefully!) divided by the number of users at that time.

The download site to their isp should be at least 45,000,000 BPS. divided by the number of users at that time trying to download.

Best way to speed up download is to be on the net when no one else is on it ! Software only makes it appear to download faster, unless the other end is using the same software and data compression.
