Torrent Speeds getting worse

I'm trying to download a short movie - *completely legal* - called "Star Wreck- The Pirkinning" from
http://www-fi1.starwreck.com/download.php
With 97 connected seeds the top speed I have achieved is 43.2kB/s after 15 minutes and it's going to take (an estimated) 3h 40mins to download a 541.3mb file.
IMHO I would have hoped for better speeds on a 2mb Premier connection

Is anyone/everyone else suffering these dire speeds?

I'm getting around 200kB/s with Direct Download and yes I know PN throttle Premier between 4pm - midnight BUT the speeds achieved on bittorrent were well below what should reasonably be expected, and certainly much slower than the qouted 5% slowdown due to throttling.
Even at other times, for example 6.30am today ,the speeds from sites (with at least 90 -100 connected seeds) was far below what I was getting a few weeks ago.
*If*I thought that this situation would persist and/or that I would fare better elsewhere. I would gladly pay to leave PN - I am only in month 3 of a 12 month contract.
Disillusionment and frustration has set in very quickly

What are they? It doesn't seem fair some people (although not many) get alot better speeds than others...and PN can't blame it on location or what not because I always got maximum speeds when i was with Pipex and getting torrents from Uknova

21kbs on torrent vs 224kbs on direct download. This looks a little more than a 10% reduction to me!!!

the speeds on that torrent are flying, i am running it on my dedicated server in the usa, and downloaded it on my NTL cable connection maxed out at 3mbit (375kb/s).
plus.net at my student house... what a joke, lol
i saw another poster say vpn is not managed, tempted to run a tunnel to my dedicated server and route all traffic over that... Cheesy
