Just because your connection speed is 3000kb/s doesn't mean you can download torrents at this speed. It depends on other factors, like the connection speeds of the people you are downloading from, and how many people are trying to access the same file, how many seeds there are for the file you want. etc.

Also, you may not have your torrent program correctly configured. Most of them require that a specific port is forwarded.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
