    Of course that is possible u are uploading to more than one person as well as downloading but your download will pass it when it gets more seeds or leechers.

    I get my best speeds using shadows experimental torrent software and matching the settings to my internet connection.

    I have ADSL 576 and set the torrent to DSL/cable fast.

    Speed for a single download peaks around 40 kbps.

    A 1.53 gig file took 16 hours today.

    BitTorrent, like practically ANY other file-sharing program, cannot download IN TOTAL faster than everyone is uploading IN TOTAL.

    So if 10 people are uploading at 10 KB/sec each (total = 100 KB/sec), if there's 10 downloaders then on average the downloaders are only getting 10 KB/sec each.

    If you're getting faster download rates than upload rates on a POORLY-SEEDED Torrent, then it's probably at the expense of others. THEY are almost certainly uploading faster than they're downloading.

    Due to upload failures, it's possible for there to be 100 KB/sec total upload speed but only ~90 KB/sec total download speed. This happens often if people haven't limited upload bandwidth to what their connection can sustain.
