I am running Utorrent and BitTorrent and up until yesterday morning they were downloading at reasonable speeds - I have a 100 mb internet connection and depending on the torrent could get speeds of 4Mp/s or 5 Mb/sand even more. Then suddenly everything slowed down to 2 kb/s and
reaching a max of 60 - 70 kb/s. First thing I did was to run a speedtest which is very ok at 95.27 Mbs download and 2.01 upload. Then I downloaded a test file from my ISP and that also was ok
- it came at 4.5 Mbs. So the problem is not with my ISP or with the infrastructure as the same results were given there too. Next I tried on another computer - also Windows 7 - and the same slow downloads were there too. Both Utorrent and BitTorrent are set to the same limitations - download 0 and upload 8. All ports are open on my router so the problem is not there too. There are also lots more seeders than leechers on each torrent although I find that even with more leechers that seeders, up to 2 days ago the downloads were still very respectable. In the past I have had situations were ISP's were purposely blocking the speeds of torrents and although they will never admit it, could that be happening again?

Also when I use Bitsoup I find that torrents get stuck on "finding peers" ..anyone else with the same problem?
