@Grant: With multiple connections it ads up to the 50 Mbps. The limit occurs per connection.

comment Debugging slow transfer rate from server
Hi Brice. I get something around 50 MB/s (bytes, not bits), which is pretty much the same speed I get if I manually copy the file to the same folder in the same disk directly in Windows Explorer (so it's limited by the speed of the disk while it reads from and writes to itself).

comment Debugging slow transfer rate from server
Hi Ron. Wouldn't that cause problems with other servers like Dropbox or WeTransfer? When downloading files from those sites I can get transfer rates that correctly match my connection speed. Also, when stablishing multiple connections to my server for a single file (using a download manager) I can get a sum of transfer rates that match my total bandwidth too.

Hi! Thanks for your response. I added the command you suggested (and its output) to the description of the problem and I also left a server instance of iperf running. If you want to try it, use the host ns1.marveldns.com.

comment Port 80 is being used by SYSTEM (PID 4), what is that?
Man! F***ing horrible Microsoft practices! I had to spend hours trying to find out why there was an IIS instance (judging by headers when connecting via telnet) listening on 0.0.0.0:80 and preventing Apache from starting, EVEN when I had removed IIS from Windows features/roles. Yes, it was the Web Deployment Agent Service, blocking all access to port 80 on any address! Man!

comment Apache on Windows in production environment? Why not?
What has to do the design of Apache and PHP with "the closed nature of Windows"? They don't need to access the "open source nature of *nix" to run. Both actually run perfectly fine on both OSs. You probably need more resources than you would need on *nix, but if your server has them, and you are using a server version of Windows, you can expect the same good performance on both. I've been actually running projects on both OSs, which mirror each other on general configuration for Apache, PHP/Perl and MySQL, and I get the same good performance on any of them.
