    Your isp is Rogers. They are well known for bandwidth shaping torrent traffic. Usually downloads run alright but when uploading they cap me at around 10 kB/s. Using encryption does not help since they throttle all encrypted traffic, including your encrypted email, logins etc. The throttling though is based on ip. Your friend may have one of their older ip's which isn's affected as much.
    Obviously this is a pain if you are trying to maintain a decent ratio on the good sites (couple it with their monthly transfer cap and it is a royal pain in the ass)
    I get around it by using a seedbox. It is outside the rogers network, uploads and downloads my torrent traffic, and I get the files by ftp.

    While you are looking for other method to counter the throttling, try doing the seeding after midnight. My isp throttled my connection most hrs of the day but it goes normal after 1 am until around 8-9am the next morning.

    Mine is mostly on 24/7 too, but after midnight I do selective seeding. That way I get to pick what tracker I channeled my bandwidth to.

    Use some weird port that is not normally used by bittorrent clients and yes making sure encryption is enabled is a plus. I think that's all that is needed. I can get full speed uploading and I know my ISP uses traffic shapping.
