    9000 kbps is equal to 1100 KB/s. Actually my ISP has now upgraded so it is a 12000 kbps connection which is equal to about 1500 KB/s.

    Um... That means the torrent file must be taken from the website? What if it's not?

    Yes, 60 kb from a public tracker on a 1mbit line is good.

    That is a good speed, but if you are only getting that on a highly seeded torrent then something's wrong. You should be maxing out at 110kb/s plus..

    Hey, I'm in the UK and have an 8MB potential connection (although my ISP has told me not to expect much more than 4MB in reality). When downloading from a fast download server I can get up to 500kB/s, and downloading from private trackers with very good seed to peer ratio it's not uncommon to get around 250kB/s.

    My problem is this: I recently started downloading many large files (110GB in total split over about 20 files). The seed to peer ratios aren't that great (between 1/5 and 1/20) but even with these ratios before, I always use to get at least 10-20kB/s rate on the smaller 300MB type files. So based on this, I figured that if I was downloading 20 files, I'd get 20 files downloading at about 10kB/s which would give me a pretty respectable 200kB/s overall, but this is not the case. For some reason it's capping at between about 60-80kB/s no matter if I'm downloading 5 of these large files or all 20. Even if I start downloading a small file from a private tracker, I only get good speeds with it when I download it by itself, not if the others are going (even though such a file will go full speed when I normally download other 300MB type files with it).

    I am behind a wirless router, but I followed all the advice at the start of this article and have done everything it said, with the exception of when it says not to download more than one torrent. The thing is, I've always gotten in a habbit of downloading 5 or 6 tv torrents at a time at the end of the week rather than when they come out individually, and doing this never gave me poor rates. Infact I found I got better global rates normally if I downloaded a few files at once.

    One example which might make the problem clearer, is that when I had all the files downloading, one particular one was only downloading at about 1 to 2kB/s, yet when I stopped all the rest it went up to 15kB/s, even though all the downloads together were no where near my download limit.

    So basically my question is, is there any way for me to get these download speeds up to the kind I know I have to potential to get? Or is there some unchangable bittorrent protocall which means I'm just gonna have to put up with these slow downloads.

    I know my problem isn't as immediate as people who are constantly stuck with a painful 5kB/s for any file despite having a fast connection, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
