My speed guide (2nd link in signature) doesn't recommend nearly that many connections for anything short of 2 mbit/sec upload. Just having lots of connections COSTS you speed. Communications has to be done very often to keep every peer/seed connected to you.

Were you just downloading 1 torrent at a time, try raising upload slots to 3-5. As-is, uTorrent will probably auto-limit upload slots to only ONE per torrent if you have more than 4 torrents active at once.
