Download a torrent that is well seeded. This Ubuntu torrent for example:

http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubunt...ve-download#bt

See how much speed you are getting.....

As has already been mentioned, you cannot get more speed than what you have.....

You'd be surprised about all that things the customers ignores about their ISP
No matter what's you bandwidth plan, speed could be managed, at will or just by mistake

i just remembered when i had slow torrent speeds but my web surfing was fine

make sure your torrent port is forwarding correctly if you are using a router, this will be the biggest thing slowing you down

second make sure your isp isn't throttling torrents :S

but the 2 plans you named, I'm not familiar with it but google says the BB Home UL 499 plan has 256 Kbps download speeds while the beam one has around 3mb download speeds :S

cable speeds are affect but user density around you (since it's shared in neighbor hood) while dsl is affected by distance to nearest hub. This is for US though but I'm fairly sure the technology is same in other countries so the benefits/disadvantages would follow
