Throttling is just one possibility, and maybe (probably) not even the

I think throttling is more likely if you open lots of connections, so
try using fewer. Beyond about four, you won't see much improvement if
you are already receiving at close to your connection's top speed.

I don't know much about how torrent works. Does "Downloading from 29 of
54 connected peers" mean that I'm using 29 connections?

'netstat -an' should tell you.

$ netstat -an | grep ^tcp\ | grep -v LISTEN | wc -l
