Have you actually done the uTorrent port forwarding test?

Also, if the ISP is capping p2p traffic, there is an option to encrypt data, which should hopefully speed it up (IIRC)

Thanks for giving us almost no information to work with.

Cap your upload at about 80% of your maximum upload capacity, and try enabling encryption.

The previous sentence is false. The following sentence is true.

Have you enabled DHT?  That helps sometimes
