How to get those great upload speeds?

I've recently started creating torrents and being the initial seed for them. But it seems to upload terribly slow when I do that. I'd like to start it out real fast so that the initial downloaders can be seeders in a hurry but my upload speed is really sorry (going as low as 0.01 K/s at times if there's only one person downloading). I've tried a couple of the different clients and setting the upload speed to unlimited but the same thing happens.

I want to get the file out there and seeded more in a hurry, but it's just not happening. I'm on cable, and I know I can upload at a good speed since I've gone past 50 K/s upload with other torrents (that I wasn't seeding). So I don't understand what's going on.

Cable modems are considered too slow for initial seeding. I would suggest using a much faster line. If I need to inital seed a file for someone, I usually use one of my servers which allows for 1200+kB/sec of upload speed available to leechers. I would highly suggest you find a person who can distribute at a very high speed, or distribute your inital file between 5 or 6 people and then seed on a tracker in order to get combined uplink.

well unless you're the only one seeding cable is fine my 35-50kb/s seeding plus whoever else is seeding as long as people will seed after they finish their files there should be no problems and the port forwarding i discussed in another thread should solve any other problems you have.

actually, by bittorrent's nature, the upload speed of the initial seeder is really nullified by the fact that when he finishes, he has a batch of dedicated seeders doing upload work for him

just make sure you get all the pieces out there
