    From which site do you download torrents ? Some sites do not give good speeds for download if your upload rate is low. Make sure you stop uploading of finished torrents and check.

    Always use torrents with good seed to peer ratio. User private trackers.

    Somehow missed this thread.

    When the registration is open, get an invite from demonoid.me or similar. They normally have good no. of seeds. Also while selecting torrents, almost all torrent clients give details about no. of seeds. Simply select the one with enough seeds.

    torrent download speeds are directly dependent on number of peers and your uploading. If you just download without some amount of upload then the protocol has provisions to penalize leechers.
