I called in to the local ISP in regards to speed.  I got 15 Mbps up and 3 Mbps optimal  speed down.

So what’s 15 Mbps in kbit/s download?
1Mb = 1000Kb, so 15Mb=15000Kb

3 Mbps upload?
3 = 3,000Kb

I got a spec sheet requesting the following...

Nos.of Concurrent Users (sharing this connection)
1–10 Concurrent Users   512Kb/s  up   768Kb/s down

Is that concurrent speed abbreviated for 5,120 and 7,680?

Yes but with a lower case "k" conventionally.

No.  (partly because you didn't give dimensions in the last sentence).
512kbps or 512kp/s is 0.512Mbps or 512,000bps
768kbps is 0.768Mbps or 768,000bps

Here's a good site I found a long the way while searching for my answer..  http://www.internetfrog.com/mypc/speedtest/    It's a nice graphical representation of all speeds.
