      Anyone else having problems with torrents?

      Everything has been fine up until now. All of a sudden no peers or connections at all. Ports are all forwarded and have had a green connection up till now. All other internet functions are fine. Would sky be throttling me?

      Cheers!

      Same results here..

      Avg 98 kB/sec.

      Initially jumps up to 1.3 mB/sec

      BUT, it aint just my torrents, youtube videos take an age with buffering etc.
      My whole internet has gone really slow.
