Unequal Upload Slot Speeds

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that on my computer uTorrent (using 1.8.2) tends to appropriate most of my upload speed to one or two of the four upload slots. I am on a xx / 512 kbit internet connection, and have followed the uTorrent recommended settings, so my maximum upload is 47 kB/s. I only find this to be an issue on torrents with few seeders and a large number of leechers. I often see one peer receiving 40 kB/s, with ~1.5 kB/s to the rest. On other occasions one peer will have 30kB/s and another 15 kB/s. The problem is that those peers tend not to upload back to me with similar speeds, so my download tends not to exceed 30 kB/s. Is there a way to force uTorrent to upload more equally between the upload slots?

N.B. This also occurs with the same computer at another location with a xx/384 kbit connection.

Rogers Cable ISP in Canada is likely to blame. They heavily throttle anything leaving their network, but anything in their network or with a "favorable" peering arrangement might get higher speeds.

Many people running BitTorrent software have it misconfigured...either with upload speed max set too high or really low relative to their connection. Neither one make good peers. And the first one isn't as good a seed as someone with settings that match their connection's capabilities.
