I might not be a problem with Transmission. The downloadspeed of a torrent depends on the ratio of seeders/leechers. If there are few seeders compared to the number of leechers, your downloadspeed will be slow.

Edit -> Preferences -> Network
Make sure your port for incoming connections is open. You may have to set up port forwarding in your router's setup.

That is the Preferences in Transmission, from the Transmission application do Edit -> Preferences -> Network.
