Very slow upload speed and low number of peers.

Recommended Posts

In the past, I do have upload speeds of 400 kB/s to 1.0 mB/s for popular torrents.

But now, my upload speeds is either nil or just a few kB/s.

I checked the peers I have for the torrents, most of my torrents have an oddly low number of peers now, either 0 or just 2-3. Is this weird ?

Edit : Just tried torrenting Ubuntu 13.04 . My download speed is as per normal, but my upload speed is horrible. 0-15 kB/s . How can it be possible that Ubuntu has only 1 active peer ? My utorrent shows 1 (689) under the Peers column.

Any help is appreciated.

Well, yes it would be, BECAUSE there are more than enough connectable seeds. So your peer is not required to carry a large part of the workload.

No.

Client Version AND build???

Oh I see, didn't think about it that way. Thanks for the clarification.

Guess I have to find some other torrents to further increase my total ratio to achieve my target of 3.00 .

No.

uTorrent 3.31, build 33017 32-bit .
