      Utorrent/Sky Broadband Help

      Hi guys. Wondering if you could help me.

      I am currently on just over 3mb speed which is fine as it does what i need for work/leisure purposes and my download speed is fine for what it is but my upload especially on utorrent is shocking. It never seems to connect seamlessly to peers and when it does it only last for a few minutes to half an hour if i am lucky.

      My current speed is:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3091 kbps 412 kbps
      Line Attenuation 55.0 db 33.3 db
      Noise Margin 8.3 db 15.9 db

      I have checked the tutorials and followed it but still no luck. Any help much appreciated

      Thanks

      Call Sky and ask them to increase your upload speed, it is capped a bit low.

      Forward your port so you're connectable in uTorrent.
      What site/tracker are you using? Private or public? You might just not have anyone downloading from you as there are no peers, only seeds on that torrent.
      On my trackers I use, often when its an older torrent there are no peers.

      Or just get a seedbox/VPN. Uploading or downloading at 60Mbps is addictive!
