Not much - Most ISP's throttle torrents and even so your not neccesarily going to get your full speed.

Change the port, make sure it's forwarded and turn on encryption are what i would recommend tbh.

Not necessarily true. Not all ISPs throttle torrent traffic.

I'm on O2 and my up/down speeds are always maxed out on a well seeded torrent.

Make sure you're using the same units for all measurements, 40kB/s is equal to 360kb/s and 860kB/s is equal to 6.88mb/s so you could well be having your torrents run at the same speed but reported in bytes instead of bits.
