Low torrent speed can have one or both of these causes:

- incoming TCP ports 6881-6999 are blocked on your system
- you do not wait long enough (bittorrent usually starts slow but then
picks up speed)

Bittorrent is always faster for me on Fedora release days, even faster
than one of the big Fedora mirrors which is essentially in my
neighborhood and which normally can saturate a 10 Mbit line for me and
can even take up most of the bandwidth on a 100 Mbit line when I'm
downloading updates from it - but when Fedora is released, it gets much
slower.
