Is anyone able to tell me if torrents indeed do use the same port and if so is this legal? Also please recommend me a new isp.

Thanks

We posted 100 times to avoid MWEB on forum.
Mweb is full of $hIt. Just switch ISP and you will lose argument against those idiots.
Save yourself the stress and move to another ISP.
I see complaints of a lot of providers so wheres the best place to go?

Well he is talking crap. You can set torrent software to use any port though the default is 6881-6889. Facebook via a web browser will use port 443 as it uses HTTPS. Don't know what the app uses.

I told them on many occasions that its ridiculous, which ISP would you recommend switching to?

I am with them. Be aware to cancel requires a calendar month notice, same as Mweb. I hate that. But I am generally happy with them.
Yes, told mweb they can take their 30 days and stick it. I have been having latency issues for 5 months with them.
