Speedtest shows the full 100mbps I pay for

you have to consider the limiting factors at play, though. The availability and size of the file/s you are downloading, the capacity of the webserver, how many other people are using it, how many other people in your immediate vicinity (from your network or neighboring ones) are sapping up the area's bandwidth and so on.
Do you let Steam automatically choose which server it is downloading from or do you choose?

My downloading speed 4 mb/s, quite comfortable for me.

That was on the 25th of this month in the wee hours. I get the feeling I was the only one on the network. Having said that, I have got up to 8MB down loading stuff.
