You could consider "highspeed" as anything other than dial-up. such as DSL, Cable, or T1. 2000kbps is actually quite fine. That would be normal for DSL.
I would like to know what kind of connection you have, cable? Also, what does your service agreement state you should get? After talking with some techs at Cox and Comcast, they consider it within normal range if you are getting at least 70% of the stated speeds.
There has been quite a discussion on what to consider actual throughput testing and whether or not it's realistic and to what extent.
Your speeds will vary and will continue to for a long time. Thats just the fundamental aspect of this beast we call broadband. If you can cruise the internets and manage to be happy with the results than you are good. Some people however, take it much more seriously, like it's there job.
