How can I improve my download speeds for bit torrents

I currently use bit comet to download torrents and the download rate isn’t too great. Rarely do I see a rate of over 60kb/s. I’ve opened the listening port and allowed the program through my firewall but it’s still slow. Any reason for these speeds. My current internet service seems to go in and out at times. Could it be my ISP? bit comet? Is there something that I’m not doing? thanks for any help.

no one knows?
