The default mirror is usually painfully slow, but when I switched to a better mirror for my location, it is extremely fast (~1.7MB/s). Have you tried looking at different mirrors? mirrors.kernel.org is pretty good if you're in the US. If you're in France, usually any mirror with an *.fr domain is good.
