Why are updates downloading so slow?

Similar to this post ( Why is software slow to install using Ubuntu Software Center? ) installing software on my laptop is taking forever. I rarely get speeds faster than about 20 KB/sec.

I tried sudo apt-get --purge --reinstall install software-center as suggested in Why is software slow to install using Ubuntu Software Center?

But that did not speed things up for me. Just updating the packages via sudo apt-get update is taking way longer than it should. I was at home when I first had this issue, now I'm on a college campus with good internet, and it is still very slow
