Try changing your download location. When I first installed Steam it was set to Seattle and was downloading slow. When I changed to Los Angeles now it downloads at 1.2 mb/s. It still took me almost all day Tuesday to download the game though.

This game is pretty large; something like 14 gigs. It's going to take a long time.

I was downloading around 800kbps-1mbps and it took awhile.
