Okay, my problem concerns with the extremely low speeds of bittorent clients. I was notified that certain clients were superior in both reliability and speed, one of which was the prominently used ABC, and in consquence, i dled that client.
after 7 hours of downloading, i return from school and the speed is around 1 - 5kb/s and the file has marginally initiated. These torrents are very popular, and the "seed" count are usually really high, but the speed is STILL this slow. This is VERY frustrating.
don't get me wrong, i have high speed shaw and it isn't through a router, and ftp: dowloads are around the 100kb-200kb/s speeds
Can anyone tell me wtf is going on with this speed, and is there any... i mean.. ANY way to get it higher that this. I heard that upload is porportional to download, but why the hell is my upload always higher than my download? like if my dl speed was 5 kb, upload is usually 5 times greater. I'm sure there are other people that have the same questions, or prehaps remedied this problem, hopefully i can get some insight on increasing this depressing speed.
