Upload speed can be adjusted, as at the program level and at the provider level. Often low rates upload varies depending on your chosen tariff and quality of services rendered. Try asking your provider the details of all the options for your plan. Most of the new providers provide services equivalent to dividing the speed of, for example, outgoing and incoming speed = 10 MB/s.
When using different torrent clients, you must ensure that the "return" is not reduced artificially. An example will be considered at one of the most common clients uTorrent. Run it by double-clicking the icon on the desktop. If the shutdown it was closed from the system tray, the screen of the program window should not appear. Open the main window by double-clicking on the tray icon.
Click the right mouse button in the lower right corner of the utility (the string "Return"). Select the appropriate speed by pressing the left mouse button on that value. Please note, if you use the torrent clients upload speed also depends on number of people, handing out at the moment. The peak of this parameter, as a rule, is achieved only late at night (due to time difference in time zones).
Low speed initially can exist at the hardware level. To check this you need to launch a browser and in the address bar enter the address http://192.168.1.1 and press the Enter key. In the opened window enter the username and password admin, and then click OK.
On the download page, go to the first tab, Device Info (Information, Info etc.). Locate the parameter Line Rate — Upstream. Some models of ADSL modems do not allow you to "accelerate" more than 768 Kbps, which is quite a low speed. To increase the speed in this case is possible only when changing relevant equipment.
