Torrent does not cut the speed, torrent just shows you the speed in other units. :)
Providers measure speed in mega bits ah. Torrents show the speed in mega bytes ah.
1 byte = 8bit.
And your 10 megabits will be the maximum speed of 1.25 megabytes / sec.
But since torrents do not show super-duper accurate speed, but rather approximate accuracy, then you need your 1-1.5 megabytes per second.
So it's okay.

Torrent is not one big server with everything from where you can download games / movies / porn / books, etc. It is a communication protocol that takes pieces of data from the sending computers and sends them to you. And 2 factors affect the download speed here:

  1. Number of distributors: the more distributors - the more fragments can be sent to you at a time;
  2. The connection speed of both yours and of each of the seeding parties. For example, if there is only one distributor, and his speed is 300 Kbps, and you have 1 Gbps, then the distributor will still not be able to send you more than 300 Kbps per second.
