Cable can only go up to 52Mb/s
Right now its capped a 4Mb/s (cable will stay around a while)
Roadrunner has a speed that is double that, if you pay extra for it

That was just a software error, if you downloaded at that speed you wouldn't have had time to snap a picture.

Many web servers cap bandwidth at 60mb or so, so no matter how fast of a connection you have, you can't get higher than that speed.
