Would you consider changing ISPs? A guy I met is thinking of starting
a no-nonsense Fiber-To-The-Home ISP in KW: www.kingstreetinternet.com
-- you could be a good candidate if he starts up, since you're in an
apt building.

Hmm, as a diagnostic, try downloading something from
http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/ like an ISO. You should be able to
max out your connection for most of the download.
