Ok I hope somebody here will be able to help.
The majority of the time I have ok speeds. My router configuration page says around 3MB, download speed via speedtest.net is around 2.5MB on average.
When I try to download something from utorrent or update an MMO application the speed drops on my pc only. The torrent or MMO will show speeds of maybe 20kb/s and upon running speedtest it will reflect the same. Even after closing utorrent or the MMO application the speed will still be slow.
After doing cmd ipconfig /release and /renew my speed will speed back up and speedtest will reflect this. Just to slow down again if I attempt to download again.
I use IE8 and Firefox 3.6.15
Tried windows firewall and AVG firewall.
My service provider is Sky BB unlimited.
3.2 i5 CPU 6GB Ram, Win 7 64 Bit, built-in Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.
I don't believe it is the hardware causing the problem so that leaves active processes to be the culprit I assume.
If anybody has any suggestion it will be greatly appreciated.

Installed NetLimiter, blocked incoming and outgoing "unrelated" connections and uninstalled Pando Media Booster and seems somewhat better for now (fingers crossed).
Any guesses why either would cause the problems I have been having? Would still appreciate any other suggestions.
