Is that so? Then what are so called legit pdf copies of copyrighted books and cracked android games with unlimited money doing there? You are to blame and no one will help you.
ask your ISP for help or go find a solution for yourself.

What are you downloading with Torrent? In all honesty the source of your files will be the deciding factor when talking about download speeds. On another note, are you certain your ISP oisn't limiting your download speeds? Google's content will be cached which is why they will download faster.

I download only free legal stuff and no my ISP isn't limiting my download speed because my friend has the same ISP and he downloaded the same file and he got around 10 MB/s while I only get max 1 MB/s

It depends on the amount of peers that the torrent has and that how much your isp caches the torrent file. Also as I saw in the link downloading movies and tv shows via torrent is illegal and considered piracy. So i request the mods to close this thread.

This is from your post on toms guide. There you clearly admitted that you use torrent to download movies and tv show. I assume you are from India (from your name), so its definitely illegal there.
