This problem is over a week by now, i have a 2MB connection, but DDL speed are only about 10 - 20kb/s but when I'm using torrent it's 120 - 150kb/s is the internet the problem, or the file hosting sites? or etc.

When you're downloading from torrents you're downloading from multiple users, where the speeds can go faster. Direct Downloads you're just getting it from one source, so that's why you're seeing a slow speed.

You would have had to check out your peer list. Some peers will give you 100 kb while others will give you less than 1. If you have a few big doners you can DL massive collections in a few minutes. You are screwed if you only have one connection and that only give yo 1 kb every now and then.
