First I would make sure on the torrent app you're using (Bittorrent, Ttorrent, Utorrent etc) isn't the problem.
I remember when I had downloaded Bittorrent it asked me if I only wanted to download torrents while on WiFi and I accidentally hit the "yes" button and it never let me change it back.

So first, go into your applications and clear defaults for your torrent app and make sure you hit "no" when that prompt shows.

If that doesn't help, I would recommend rooting and uninstalling the Knox apps using Titanium Backup.

That's what I did and torrents work fine for me.

Try downloading/starting the torrent on WiFi then switching to 4G for the actual download. My school blocks torrent sites and apps so I do the opposite. I get on 4Glte and find my torrent, start the download, then switch back to school WiFi.

not to hijack the thread but what torrent apps are you guys using on your phones? And is this to download the torrent to your phone or somehow use your phones torrent app to download the torrent at home?
