Silly question but should torrents be quicker?

Over the past few days downloads from torrents appear to be grinding to a standstill.
For example the usual test torrent
http://torrent.unix-ag.uni-kl.de/
with all those seeders(205 with 62 connected) is crawling down at an average of 37kbps after 20 minutes
I know that are a lot of variables to be taken into consideration with torrents but I think I should expect faster than this.
I'm on a Premier account and using Azureus

P2P is bronze, meaning low priority, http traffic takes precedence, therefore you will find p2p slow during high traffic times, along with usenet and some others. Perhaps we could have a list of what services are gold, silver, and bronze, might make life easier.

I expect it to slow down a bit in peak hours, but 37kbps is more than a* little* slow.
At that rate it's going to take 1day 2hours to download the file :roll: :shock:
