Really slow upload speeds when using torrents, help!!

Guys, i have been having terrible upload speeds for a while now when downloading torrents, my download speeds are fine (+ 100kb's) but for some reason my upload speeds struggle to get to about 20kbs. Could anyone offer any ideas why?is the due to plusnet? I'm only asking this because on certain sites i use i have to make sure my share ratio is above 0.5 and its getting drastically close to it..otherwise i get banned!! so any help would be awesome,

Cheers.

Hi there,

I take it you're not limiting upload on the client or within your machine? What are the stats for your line?

I don't think there's any reason why there should be a considerable lower upload rate. As Dave has suggested, try checking to see if the global upload rate is being limited and ensure that nothing else is running at the same time which could be using upstream bandwidth.

Yeah I've done all the checks but still getting lousy upload rates, really don't understand what the problem is. It took me all night to upload 52MB which is really poor, considering I downloaded a 1.37GB file in just under 3 hours!
