I get from my ISP 50 Mbps upload/download link via BGP. I tried to test today the speed by downloading around 10 torrents simultaneously and I use PRTG Network Monitoring to view port traffic speed. According to PRTG Reports the maximum rate of speed I get is 20 Mbps.
I use Cisco 2821 ISR on my side.
So I would like to know if it's a hardware limitation of my router or I should force provider to verify the link.
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks for the point.
CPU utilization is 12-15%.
In that case, the router, itself, shouldn't be the bottleneck.
