only thing you can do is contact your internet service provider and they should run some test to see if there's a fault

@Rahul You are signed up to a 1 Megabit per second service.
Your download speeds are measured in bytes.
There are 8 Bits to a byte.
A 1Mbps line usually results in 120kB/s downloads. You're getting what you're supposed to get.

I am subscribed to 512kbps and i get 60-64kB/sec download speed.

Does that 1.5mbps amount to actual download speeds of lets say 1500 kB/sec??

Never heard of wi5 broadband.Anyway if that's the case you better contact your ISP and tell them you are getting variations in download/upload speeds.
