This week I have noticed that MTNL Triband has capped their upload speed. When I tested it at speakeasy.net I got DL of 210Kbps and upload of 27Kbps during their nighttimr free hours. I would like other members to corroborate this by checking on their PCs during those hours.My uTorrent uploads are in low range hence downloads are also lowHey after posting the above I converted mu Utstar modem to bridged option and guess what.........hey presto!...the upload speed has been restored and utorrent is back to max dl speed.Anyone care to explain?

synced at 256 kbps...so u can upload 32 kBps max...rest the actual upload speed depends on lot of other factors...

@panther...what i said means that you can get upto 32 kBps but ur actual speed depends on other factors like distance from the exchange and ur line condition and stuff...so basically MTNL hasn't capped anything, ur speed is based on the other factors...

Even I am experiencing the same problem. Some time back, I was able to get around 28-29 KBps on torrent downloads. But now, since the past 1 week I'm not able to even touch 25 KBps. The seeds are ample (300-350), seed to peer ratio OK, my friend downloading the same file at 29-30KBps with an Airtel connection. What could be the possible reason? I am on bridged mode. Could the reason be my simultaneous seeding? Earlier I wasn't in the habit of seeding files that I leeched. But now I regularly seed each and everything that I download. I get upload speeds of 30 KBps, but not download speeds.

Yaa that could be the reason. Cap upload bandwidth at 25 - 26 kbps. That might help.

I get speed of ~25-29 KBps download and upload of 22-25However if I restrict the upload speed the download speed does increase
