    Although their techs always refuse that they do that, the bit torrent traffic is shaped from my ISP. I don't bother using bittorrent because of them.

    I did an experiment and also some research. I found that if you use non normal ports your downloads will slow. But if you use normal ports, like 21; 80; 443 and such - you will see a difference in the speed.
