      Slow torrent speeds?

      Hello guys.

      I have tried looking around the forum to find something to help me but I cannot find anything.

      I am on the connect package from Sky, awaiting to be migrated to Max when available. I am sure when my broadband first went live I was downloading via torrent at over 200kb/second, although now it seems not to want to go over 57/second!

      I have set up the portforwarding correctly, as I've set it up with my parents Virgin Media connecting and the downloads there are fine.

      I don't download a lot at all, it must average out at around 10mb/day on torrents throughout the month, so I don't think I'll have been capped.

      Does anybody have any ideas on how I can make it faster again? I miss my speedy downloads!!

      Forgot to mention, my downloads over the internet are just fine.

      Get transferred to Mid or Max, no throttling there

      Seriously, as soon as your exchange is enabled, start hassling Sky to move you over and keep hassling them till they do.
