Are you sure you're getting 2MByte/s from Youtube - they only encode at 2Mbit/sec and they serve their files rate limited?
If I were to download an HD video from youtube, my rate is 2MB/s. Only for HD videos though, the others are much slower.

How would I get a server that can transfer 2MB/s to myself? I use Comcast in California.
