Why are peer-to-peer programs slow at pacific?

Programs like: Kazaa, e-mule, BitTorrent, soulseek, so on and so forth.

Peer-to-peer is slow at pacific due to:

Packetshaper (gives specific programs/applications higher or lower priorty on the campus internet connection. all p2p progams are given lowest priority)

8 MB is alloted for all peer-to-peer, gaming, and IM
2 MB is alloted for bittorrent

3200 students are using a possible 8MB of bandwidth

sigh. even soulseek is slow. life sucks.
