    I'm on Orcon's version of the DSL service. Max / max.

    That used to be 3.5mbps down and 512kbps up....

    Today, according to my DSE DSL router, the upstream speed has increased
    to 800kbps.....and the bittorrent client is uploading at about 75kb/sec.

  2. The Rate limiting is done someone else in the network..

    As simple as an off-day for your torrent?

    Yep the files are arriving.

    Any, and every server on the bittorrent network has the ability to control
    what they give. Also torrents do dry up as time goes by.

    So how many are you seeding?

    I tend to be a peer that leaves the torrent running until I have uploaded AT
    LEAST 1.0......and often 3 or 4 (if left overnight).

    I moved to the Advance 100 plan so my quota is now 100GB.

    My bad, misread as 75Kbps = 800kbps instead of your 75KBps (bits vs bytes).
