DL speed inversely proportional to UL speed


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else seen their download speed drastically reduce when they upload more?

The more I upload, the slower I download. All the time... Every time...

Sometimes, the DL speed drop is of more then 50% which is somewhat spectacular. Sometimes about 10%.

Whether I download 100 very poorly seeded torrents or a few very well seeded torrents.

Pale blue lines are straights of approximate tendencies of speeds (both UL and DL).

Anyone has an idea? I am tired of having to rent a seedbox.

Hello DreadWingKnight.

There are not speed guides that match exactly my connection type. But I've tried the 2 under my connection as well as the 2 above it. Edit: and some other settings of my own

I have tried with known very well seeded torrents (like OpenOffice) and the like (some linux Distros for examples).

Every time, the same results. For years now I have been using utorrent. See this image as a sensible proof since my last Windows re-install (thus utorrent too).


about since 7 or 8 months. Been a utorrent addict for 3 years now. Always the same problem since 2006.

Any pointers will help.

Proxy server may be to blame...

Terrible uTorrent settings also, so many peer/seed connections allowed and tiny upload speed!

Then you're splitting the upload between multiple torrents at once and 5 upload slots PER torrent. :(

Peers will mutiny on you, snub your connection, and refuse to upload to you if you upload so slowly to them.
