It seems to me that your logic is broken, I will attempt to fix it.

You say that you have downloaded a file to your remote server and you cannot download the same file to your PC because your PCs internet speed is to slow, so I assume your remote server is not using the same internet connection as your computer (i.e. your remote server and your PC are not on the same local network).

If this assumption is true and your PCs internet is truly too slow to download the file then it doesn't matter what tool/service you use to transfer the file from your remote server to your PC as all such tools/services will require the internet to transfer a file from one place to another, thus no such tools/services can be capable of what you want. You may have to resort to using carrier pigeons.
