Unbelievable speed! But WHY?!

I just downloaded a movie from Kazaa and it's 680MBytes. I got the download
in 4 hours at a rate of 40KBps (app). Nowt weird about that, you might
say....'but I only have a 56K modem and DialUp! (Blueyonder).
Can anyone explain to me how it is that I got this kinda speed using only a
standard 56K modem?
I'm not complaining, but am curious as to how/why this happened as my usual
speed is about 4KBps!.
