Whole network slows down while torrenting at extremely slow speeds

So I've been doing some torrenting recently and whenever I do, my whole network get clogged up. I am only downloading/uploading at a max of 1MB/s and it even does it at 100KB/s.

I am on 150Mb/s speed so that isn't the issue.

qBittorrent has been setup right, port forwarded, set a max limit on connections but the whole thing still dies.

I have also been getting these messages on my network log everyday for the past week+ which has never happened before. Also I have posted my downstream/upstream below incase it may be that.

Virgin Media throttle torrenting. Have a look at your T&Cs (contract).
