Apache will happily saturate your available bandwidth, if there's no other
contention.  Of course, my first suspicion here would be that you're not
having troubles with a congested connection, but just with math and the
different between bits and bytes.

My DSL connection has an upload speed of 256 kbits/s.  Most web browsers
will display download speeds in kBytes/s.  256 bits is 32 Bytes.  So, if
you're downloading from your webserver at 30 kBytes/s, you're getting 240
kbits/s, which is pretty darn close to your line speed, especially when
you factor in TCP overhead.

If simple math isn't the issue, I suggest you look for other applications
running on your network (like file sharing apps) that are causing
bandwidth contention.
