There's a small page on Wikipedia describing this in more detail.

I have Comcast, but I am still able to download torrents. Although, I am still able to download torrents, my internet gets really slow, especially when I'm trying to access web pages.

Unfortunately, there is no other real alternative in my area for hi-speed internet than Comcast.
