    One option is to use a fee based service like btguard.com You can hide just your torrent use or get the full VPN service which encrypts all your internet activity (surfing, email, etc)

    Change whichever port number you are using for your torrent client, most 6881-6889 ports can be easily blocked or limited by providers so change to a high number upto 65529...

    You can tunnel openvpn through ssh or ssl. That way if your isp is doing deep packet inspection they can't see that your traffic is vpn and throttle it on that basis too. I'm not sure what policy is here on endorsing a paid product and I don't want to get in to trouble. But, I will tell you that if you look around there is at least one paid vpn service that is very, very good at helping you get around stuff like that. If you do some googles they shouldn't be hard to find.
