    My stupid ISP (Atlantic Broadband) gives me 12 megabit internet, but locks my torrents to 30 kB/s.
    I've tried encrypting on uTorrent, and I've tried RC4 on Azureus, but it's still capped. (Unless I did it wrong)

    Are there any other methods of encryption I can try?

    Are you sure it's locked? Maybe it's just a slow torrent. What are you trying to download anyway?

    I've tried it with multiple torrents, and Atlantic Broadband is on Azureus' list of bad ISPs.

    Try downloading a popular Linux distribution from an official torrent, you'll always get the full speed that your connection allows you to get. Only use such torrents for testing.

    Or, you know, you could use those torrents to install Linux if you so desire.

    It only blocks known government owned IP's. It doesn't do any encrypting.

    Try port 45682. Don't forget to open the port you use on your router if you use one.
