There really isn't much you can do. Satellite broadband like Gobush is very touch and go. The very nature of satellite internet technology has an inherent latency that will affect your connection. Other factors like weather will come into play as well. Basically, the speeds listed are the maximum potential, not a guarantee. They are not always what you will actually receive. While it is possible, people almost never reach the listed "maximum speed" of their provider. This is the case no matter who your provider is or what kind of service you have.
Looking at the packages that Gobush offers, you are getting far higher than their mid-range plans, and well above their acceptable range:

60% of your peak speed of 1024kbps would be 615kbps, so you are making out rather well. :black:
