My System Specs


If TekSavvy cable is in your area, I'd suggest switching. You should be able to get a 15Mbps/1Mbps with 200GB cap for roughly the same price.

No throttling in my area and everything does a solid 1.4MB/s. If I'm luckily I can actually sustain 1.8MB/s as well.

Otherwise, there's nothing noticeably wrong with your service. Once you switch to a better torrent client and cap your upload speed in it to 90% or less (uTorrent has an auto-config which can help) you should be good to go.

Also never trust speed tests on cable. Due to SpeedBoost, you can't get a reliable result. A proper test would be to download a Linux ISO or something of substantial size from a good server.
