Slow Web Server

I am running Apache Web Server.  I have 384 kbps upload (tested at pcpitstop.com).  
When I ftp to the server, upload speeds are terrible!!
For a 692 KB picture, it takes about 20 minutes to upload.
My calculation is it should take (692*8)/384 =~ 15 seconds to upload.

Once the picture is up and I put it on a web page. When I browse to that web page
it takes the same picture about 10 minutes to download.  At pcpitstop.com my download speed
is 2062 kbps.

Any idea what could be going on here?
