Hi! I have a 512kbps ADSL Connection, but sometime when I'm downloading
NetMeter shows a higher rate, like up to 1mb/s or sometimes 3mb/s
and the thing is downloading speed is not rising on those moments,

Actually waht i mean is, when meter showing MAX SPEED: 3.02 mb/s
my download level 450kb/s is not rising over 450kb/s

why is that?

There's one small spike that's distorting the max. Getting that close to 512kbps is a good thing.
