Its not just the client you use .
Do you use a router ?
Have you configured port forwarding ?
What service provider are you with ? Some isps throttle certain ports which would cause poor results .

Then the next question is where are you downloading from ?
Some closed groups provide great speeds .
General googled torrent sites are not always the best places to go , just because a torrent has say 10-20 seeders doent mean you are going to get good speeds .

Technically, torrents are P2P. I reccomend BitComet for torrents.

In a nutshell, Newsgroups
thats all I use these days, coz torrents are far too slow imo.
Newsgroups max out any connection not like the varied speeds you would get on torrents.
Search about and find a good newsgroup, some are free but the best are for a small monthly fee.

I use bitcomet and have had speeds of up to 170 KB per second on one torrent alone. Depending on the number of torrents I am downloading, I am normally downloading at a combined rate of about 221 KB per second.

But I suspect this is more to do with the line than the bittorrent client. Btw, my line is 2 meg.

I have noticed that if you limit your maximum allowed upload speed to about 13 KB per second, you get better download speeds overall. Any one else noticed that?
