    Like most ISP's in India Iqara is yet another loser. They give "unlimited" connections but if you download too much they purposely turn down the speed.
    There's nothing you can do except stop paying their bills.

    Switch to MTNL/BSNL NU if you want proper speeds.
     
  4. utorrent: Right click on the downloading file>Bandwidth allocation>High.
    this might help.

    It depends on the number of seeders that torrent is having. If the seeders r less than u will get low speeds but if seeders r high then u will get high speed. Try downloading something frm microsoft site. If u get high speed then everything is normal.

    1. check the speed of your internet connection, whether it is ok or not.
    2.use utorrent/azureus
    3.forward the port you are using, see http://portforward.com/ for help.
    4. disable DHT in your client.

    I use the above tricks and get a speed above 25-27kBps on a 256kbps connection always.
    Please choose the torrents which have good number of seeders/peers or it is best to use private tracker.

    Use Protocol Encryption in utorrent,Try both Enabled and Forced.Limit the no of global connections and no of peers per torrent bcoz too many connections will increase ur overhead bandwidth and decrease ur D/U speed.

    hey dude .. i have the same 650 ul plan..
    i was facing the same problem as you. But now i am getting good speeds of around18kbps (depending on torrent)..
    I did the followiong:

    1. Use Utorrent
    2. Use port 1090 ( it is the port used for voip applications so it cant be blocked)
    3. Enable Encryption as mentioned in one of the above posts.

    This should work!
