How can I use my full internet bandwidth?

I subscribe to 12 MB per second from my ISP and according to Speedtest I get 30, but how come my downloads from even the most stable servers only come in at 2 MBps at best?

According to my iStat menus, I get up to 4 MBps, although according to my download progress I’m getting 2 at best. Is this because servers are only capable of permitting 2MBps downloads or is there something on my end that needs to be changed?
