Is telstara Internet a DSL company? If yo, you're probably out of luck. DSl companies bottleneck all upload speeds. They say, and I quote...That's from bellsouth's tech support.Because home users don't upload. The most they do is send an attachment with an email
Thats your maximum upload speed, your ISP doesnt give you more.
Your client can does not play a factor in the upload if your ISP limits it. There is no way around your upload speed unless you change your ISP.
I haven't taken a beating like that since I opened my first issue of Hustler!

that test is in bits per second and utorrent shows Bytes per sec
so 290 kb/s is 36kB/s
(kb/s) / 8 = (kB/s)
Bottom line is thats what you have and that test confirms it.
