If your ISP is really hostile to the point of blocking/throttling unknown encrypted traffic, there's not much you can do besides get another ISP. :(

If your uTorrent settings don't match your connection's ability, your resulting speeds can be pretty bad.

If uTorrent is saying it's firewalled, your resulting speeds can be pretty bad.

...Yet you've mentioned none of this. :P
