It could be a restriction of your ISP. You can go to a site such as and run a test to see what your download/upload speeds are.

Torrents are not fast to begin with, added to the fact that a large number of providers throttle torrent traffic. You are also limited by the slowest link in the chain. It doesn't matter that you may have 20Mb/sec service if the server at the other end can't do more than 2Mb/sec.
