Am a beam customer from malkajgiri area and am quite happy with my beam! Am on Rs1000- 10Mbps plan!While direct downloads am getting 1.2MBps with internet download manager and while i dont upload much..the upload sppeds are in the range of 5-6 mbps! But the problem starts when i registered myself in a torrent website...when ever i download torrents....speed is 700-800kbps and in some good torrents i get 1.1MBps speed but its the upload thats sucking! mostly upload is some 400 Bits and sometimes 1 kbps during download and its 15-20kbos during seeding! Due to this my ratio of downloads/uploads is getting affected!i even checked the setting...theres no upload restriction in my utorrent client :_Any suggestions.?! :eek:

Are there enough leechers to seed back to ? Check the seeder:leecher ratio on that particular torrent. Is it 1 or close to 1 or may be 2 , if there are like 1000 seeders and 25 leechers then you just wont be able to seed to them. Choose your torrent wisely.

yea..but mostly i download from top torrents which have a good seeders/leachers ratio! :confused:

Thats where the problem lies. The top torrents are usually saturated to the brim with seeders in thousands and leechers in few hundreds. When there are like 30 seeders feeding one leecher, it will be difficult to connect to that leecher.

Choose smaller torrents which have like 100 seeders and 40 leechers or something on these lines. ALways download the latest torrents from the first page itself.

Just to cite an example if I were in your place I would have chosen the following torrents to seed -- >

i keep switching between Vuze and uTorrent and Vuze does handle downloads better for me compared to uTorrent.

I personally leave my torrents seeding for weeks or even months after they're finished to ensure that my ratios stay nice :)
