    i have an 8mb line and constantly hit 500-600kb downloads. on average they tend to stay around the 180kb mark then peak for a while before dropping back down. i use bittornado and have found ports 10001-10004 to work for me.

    500-600KB/s niiiiice speeds, I don't think i can get an 8mb line in the U.K, a company called Bulldog may offer it but you have change your phone line from BT.

    I will be adding to the list when i find some more [bold]good[/bold] sites.

    Some people that try and open 1001-1004 and other Bittorent ports,are sometimes denied by their Internet Service Provider(ISP)

    I'll give demonoid a try, I recall using it's tracker from a previous download but can't remember which one.

    i went with bulldog 8mb and their phone line. i know a lot of people complain about the customer service and that's valid from my own experience but i can't fault their speeds.

    When i finish with my current provider i will consider the option of bulldog,

    Also have you tried http://www.filelist.org just got a max of 120KB/s, you'll probably get about 800KB/s from some of them torrents.

    give it a try, and also try some of the other sites i have suggested.

    Also on Port Forwarding if anyones struggling if you need to access your router config..
    http://192.168.1.1/ (Asus, Draytek, Linksys, Zyxel, Cisco,WooWeb-Pro)

    http://192.168.2.1/ (Belkin,SMC (some browsers need :88 added))

    http://192.168.0.1/ (DLink, NetGear,Nexland)

    And then visit Portforward. this is a great site for instructions with pictures: http://portforward.com/routers.htm Also, most manufacturers post their manuals online.

    You [bold]need[/bold] to forward your ports if you have NAT in order to get optimal speeds. This is one of the most common issues, people fail to configure when they use BitTorrent.

    BitTorrent default ports are ports in the range of 6881-6999.

    Also if you can't open your ports, try a port range a bit higher up... like 50000 sort of area, it could be your ISP blocking it (your ISP could be blocking common p2p ports).

    I use 65535, works great. =D

    Also another handy thing i would like to add is Mozilla Firefox plugins, I have the Torrentspy, BiteNova and the Torrenttyphoon Plugin. Excellent 'lazy' feature that saves alot of typing although i don't use public trackers as much i ust to their still very handy when my U/D ratio is getting abit out of control or if it's a torrent i don't mind waiting for.

    If you dont have firefox get it here http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ It's the perfect browser for torrents especially with all the plugins and Bookmarked torrent sites.

    P.S all those intending to get Firefox look at Geestars pipelining thread OMG that increases the speed of loading pages considerably, which is handy when browsing while downloading Torrents

    hehe,i'm in the same boat
    just about getting banned from them,for downing average of 80 gb a month on a 2 gb a month tariff
    phuc em
    going to switch to u.k online in oct
    seems the best bet,all the others have limits and caps

    [bold]just a little tip for azureus users[/bold]

    if you are downing from a private site,and using azureus,you must turn off DHT,
    your upload's may well be shared by users that are not registered on the private site,thus affecting your ratio
