      Utorrent DL speeds??

      Hi all

      I am on the sky max package and sync'd to the exchange at 6144kbps, i get an average DL speed of around 5200kbps.

      My router is port forwarded correctly and i am using the latest version of Utorrent but i never get a DL speed of more than 600kbps. I use private trackers such as TL and blackcats-games which my mates get over 1mbps on.

      is there a way to use the extra download speed which my line can handle or are my speeds the norm for torrents

      thanks for any advice
      Danny

      Sure your not mixing up bits and bytes? i.e. you're seeing 600kBps not 600kbps. Utorrent reports in bytes not bits. Your router reports in bits not bytes.

      600 kBps = 4800 kbps.
