Read the fine print, and learn the units.

Chances are, your connection is 2Mbps.  Mbps (with a small 'b') is megabits per second.
Chances are, your download rate is 192kBps.  kBps (with a big 'B') is kilobytes per second.
Therefore, your download rate is 8x192kbps, or about 1.5Mbps.  Not perfect, but reasonable for a 2Mbps connection.

additionally your downloads are not just your broadband but the server that is sending the file can be a bottleneck

run cmd and type tracert (servername) and that may show a problem copy it to here so we can see it

It is also likely that there is contention for your broadband connection. Although your physical pipe is 2Mbps, it is extremely unlikely that your ISP has sufficient backhaul capacity to provide 2Mbps to every one of their customers at the same time.

So, the real speed you get is likely to depend upon what other customers of the ISP are doing at the time. One of the problems for ISPs at the moment is that the advent of P2P traffic is changing the shape of customers bandwidth demands. People are downloading more in the background which changes the requirements for the ISP.

Cheers,

Joel
