Slow single-file download speeds, but overall speeds are normal. Why?

Hello U-Verse people!
I just got U-Verse installed less then a week ago, and I'm having issues with it. I have the highest level of U-Verse internet, the Max Plus 24mbps tier. My speed tests are right up there, around 22-23 mbps but by single-file downloads are much slower, to the tune of 500-600k/sec. This is from sources that I used to get much higher speeds from (EDU servers, Microsoft, Apple, Newsgroups, etc.) The funny thing is that I can download multiple files from the same site and they all cap out around that speed if it's just 1 file or 4 files. Clearly, U-Verse isn't maxing out my pipe when I download 1 file, which is what would happen when I was using a Cable modem.
I wanted to add that these speeds are all hard wired to the 3801RG that was provided, no wireless here just yet until this gets fixed.
