Sounds like a possibility. Nobody seems to disclose what exactly the installer did though.

I can do up to the full 5Mbps (540KB/s) on torrents in so-called off peak hours. Same goes for upload (80KB/s). Granted you can't do both at once as you need some free upload bandwidth to have proper communication. I typically keep my upload capped at 60KB/s. Apparently using port 1723 with forced encryption can help ease the throttling. Not sure though. You can also do single-link MLPP to work-around the throttling.
