Opera Turbo is a proxy server that stores highly compressed web pages to speed up browsing on slow connections. It won't have the slightest effect on download speed.
Try changing the number of connections to server in Preferences, Network. (I am using the default settings)
Maybe antivirus or something is slowing things down. On a 10 mbit cable b/b connection with Virgin Media using Avast free antivirus, I don't find that a 200 Mbyte LibreOffice download takes anywhere near 20 minutes — more like two or three 1178 KB/s

edit: checked, it's not off the main servers, maybe you can access it... link to download
What are your settings for maximun connections to a server and maximum total connections?
Also, any antivirus being used? If so, check with it disabled to see if the download is still slow.
