Hi again Claire, have a look at this thread and try the encryption method. It may just fool your ISP for a while!
The thread is regarding Pipex specifically but the info regarding Azureus etc is good for all ISPs as most employ some form of management now. If your ISP uses DPI, then encryption is just about the only way around it.

Had the same, I'm on Pipex, after reading Zer0's post tried various ports until I got one that gave me full speed again. Using 10000 at the moment.

These are the sort of speeds you should be looking at with a healthy torrent and a 2M connection:

How healthy? Does it support encryption? A 128K connection is not really suitable for using BT and I wasn't aware that Pipex supported such low speeds. Is this an IDSN connection rather than BTw supplied broadband?
PM me the name of the file you're after and I'll see if I can source it somewhere else.

Seven seeds and 24 peers do not indicate a healthy torrent. I don't use µTorrent so I can't be of much help but what's the quality of the seeders and peers? If they're all very slow, you're either going to need to find a different source or put up with it.

Of course, I meant ISDN in my post above! Why are you using that - Is DSL not available to you? It's much better and probably a hell of a lot cheaper too.

You really need to find out exactly what service you are receiving first. Judging by the 128K speed (Your dad probably doesn't actually dial up - Windows just makes it look like it.), I'd say that you are using a (Very expensive?) ISDN connection.

128 kilbits per second divided by 8 = 16kBytes per second.

looks to me like the 128k connection is working as fast as it can!.

whats the uplink speed on a 128kbits/s connection?

I believe it's 128K up and down less overheads of course. That same Ł15 will get you a 2M (Up to 8M?) DSL connection if you shop around and don't go overboard with the downloads.

A decent DSL/cable service will afford you a rock solid connection without interruption.
The only "crap" you'll have to install is a modem driver (If applicable). Of course, this will be offset by the fact that your ISDN modem will become redundant. Where a router is used, no software at all will be required.
You need to work out your requirements before any recommendations can be made but for starters, pop your telephone number into the exchange search at SamKnows and this will inform you of what delivery methods are available to you.

So you're basically limited to BTw providers in the same way that most of us are. As a new customer, you'll probably be connected via MAX and that means a line speed of up to 8M.
Now you need to work out what you expect from your connection.

Do you have a bank account with credit or debit card facilities?
Do you want to pay an up front connection fee or absorb it over time?
Do you want a "free" modem or router?
How much downloading do you think you'll do over what period of time?
Will you be running any servers?
How many email addresses do you need?
Are addons such as webspace important to you?

Do you want a "free" modem or router? yes if possible

How much downloading do you think you'll do over what period of time? if i can get 2Mb connection probably anything i wanted i'd be downloading every day.

Will you be running any servers? no

How many email addresses do you need? none

Are addons such as webspace important to you? no

Now you have to look at your monthly budget. There aren't many cheap ISPs that have liberal download/FUP/AUP allowances these days. Zen are about the best out there but they are expensive.
Nildram may suit your requirements but no equipment is provided and there is a setp fee.
Zen are about the best for downloads but again, they are expensive and no initial offers.
BT Broadband provide a modem or router but are very loosely limited to around 2G per month on their cheapest package.

Have a look around on the dedicated UK DSL sites and see if there's anything that takes your fancy. Be very wary of lengthy contracts though and ensure that migration is fully supported.

Remember that DSL modems are available via eBay for pennies and basic routers don't cost a lot more.

Any UK DSL device should work with any UK ISP.
