You're in Asia expecting American and European servers to serve you in the same speed as a more local person.

Make sure that your Steam location is correct for your area. Aside from that, you're an outlayer for the game, more than likely anyone else in your area (how many people do you know in real life who also play garry's mod? ask them what THEIR dl speed is) is also slow as heck.

Steam workshop is slow as hell anyway. My games download at 1 MB/s, but the workshop at around 150 KB/s.

First of all, steam download servers have nothing to do with the Workshop, chaning the server location in settings has zero effect on the speed. Second of all, i get ~6 mb/s when downloading from steam yet workshop is capped at 15 kb/s and im in Moscow, not in Asia.
