I noticed that my FC1 download started quite slowly too.  It did pick up
some after 15-30 minutes.  But it really took off after I opened up one
more port in my firewall as the docs suggest.  (Actually, they suggest
opening a bunch of them).  I kept opening consecutive ports one at a
time every 15 minutes or so for about 2 hours.  Unfortunately, I never
saw an increase after opening just two total ports - 6881 and 6882 iirc.

The whole download took just under 4 hours on my Comcast cable.
