Torrent download speed


I have used Miro for a couple of years to download torrents.

I'm not really a computer guy but I do understand the relevance of 'seeders' etc in relation to torrent speeds. The time of day often makes a difference also for me.

If I'm unlucky with the influencing factors, I might just get tens of kbs in speed, sometimes a few hundred. If the torrent is seeded in the tens of thousands I can achieve around 1.1Mb in speed but it never goes over that under any circumstances.

Given my BB speed is around 10Mbs, is it expected for a download to approach that or at least go over 1.1Mbs ?

I have messed around with the download settings in Miro but is there anything else I should consider ?

Of course if I get 1.1Mbs in speed I'm very happy but I'd hate to be missing something simple which would increase it even higher.

Kind regards.

Any tips at all for boosting torrents speeds ? 

I'm sure I've read of people claiming to get many Mbs per second.
