    I'm sure the problem is not with her internet connection speed. Maybe she just hasn't configured her torrent client properly. Read more here:

    here we go again
    2MB connection is useless unless her download gets more sources, downloading from bittorent depends on number of users sharing same file, usually on most of public BT trackers you get thoes kinda of speeds, tell her to join one of poupolar PRIVATE TRACKERS and she should max her connection, 200Kb if she has 2MB line.

    it should also be noted that some ISPs block or heavily shape the connection to slow down p2p etc and prioritse web browsing and email.

    So you should change the port the client uses from the default as a matter of course

    If she is using utorrent or any other torrents, try changing the max connections and such to about 10,000. I did that and my speeds increased greatly to about 500 (Maxing my connection).
