I think the download speed is network dependent, meaning everything depends on the way your network works and the traffic at that particular time. If you have noticed that downloading at night, from 22:00 in the evening till 07:00 in the morning is much faster simply because at those times most people aren't online or rather asleep. And you will always download at faster speed during those times Again the fact that your speed is 1 mbps doesn't mean that you will use that speed to download or just browsing. The thing is that the speed is divided into packs, meaning the other halves is used for things like protection of that when you browse and reducing the noise or error handling, all those things are divided from the speed of your connection and you will always get the lower speed

I am not sure about that, but 60kbps at night is way too low, but like i said the speed depends on the network, if your network is limited to that speed then i don't think there is anything you can do about that, because then is like as if is locked or maybe that is their maximum they set on your network I have also tried the accelerators but only to find that they do not work, like in situation where i download more things at the same time, i only found that the speed is divided amongst my downloads and now is like the acceleration doesn't work. And i don't think that will work
