I just did a quick test and I get much better results. Obviously, to  
my office is 5-10 MB/s which is expected since the servers are very  
close to me. But even downloading to my personal machine at home over  
a cable modem averaged around 1 MB/s.  There's probably a point when  
you're too far away for pings to accurately model the bandwidth  
between, but I think you should be getting something better than 10KB/ 
s anyway.
