They proberbly throttle BitTorrent at peak hours. Try Enabling Encryption in uTorrent (I'm assuming that's what your using). This wont help with your speed, but if your downloading... semi-legal things, or you just down want companies to find out what your downloading - get PeerGuardian.

it kinda depends on your connection, and the connections of the peers and seeds you are connected to. You can only go as fast as they are willing to upload.
you cant finish the torrent if there is no seeds.

When you are downloading your Linux ISO's.... (heh), I'd order the search by the number of seeds. Normally makes for the Fastest download speeds, and the higher reliability

To get a higher speed you need to set DS and US to unlimited and have seeders. Make sure no firewalls are interfering as well.

Did you go over your bandwidth? I doubt they will pursue you however being a second letter.. never know, did the letter just tell you to delete w/e you downloaded and not to seed it?
