    My guess is you haven't set the cap on your non-turtle UL low enough.

    When the limit is off, it's completely maxing out your outgoing connection, which in turn slows EVERYTHING else on that connection down--packet requests to other peers get held up and so your incoming data drops drastically. I'm assuming if you tried to do anything else at the same time it would also be dog-slow.

    Use a speed tester or other method to determine what your ACTUAL outgoing bandwidth is, then set the max UL cap at least slightly lower than that, to allow headroom for other outgoing data.
