I download a lot of Linux torrents for testing systems every time there is a new release. And Linux torrents are always seeded well so seeding is not the issue here. Neither is firewall, I have port forwarding setup properly. I did a glasnost test and my ISP does not throttle my connection. So...
I've tested and verified over the past year that I would get the maximum download speed possible with my connection(2MBps) if I have at least 6kbps upload set.
Lately this is not true. If I have 6kbps upload my download gets capped at ~91kbps. If I have 10kbps upload the max download I get is around 153kbps. And so on. I can clearly see that the download speed increases as I increase the upload speed in steps.
So did something change with uTorrent? I'm using uTorrent 2.0 Beta. Should I go back to the non-beta version?
Can someone confirm that this is happening. I'm going mad trying to analyze the source of this.
