Angry Torrent downloads are POOR!

hey everyone, iv recently moved and set up a new internet connection etc and have tried to get BT working but still cannot get anything like the speeds i should. i am using a simple thomson speedtouch 300 adsl modem, through a tiscali service.
i am also running zone alarm pro and AVG antivirus and have a clean system.
my connection is 8mb/s so you can understand why im frustrated that im only getting 5kb/s at best. i have previously used a router and know how to forward ports etc, but everyhting i have tried has made little or no difference.

please help guys! thanks, PJ

Is zonealarm set to allow connections on whatever port your torrent prog is using ?

Were you using tiscali before ?
