More connections often don't translate into higher speeds. Typically there will be a few peers with big pipes that provide most of the transfer speed, and a lot of smaller peers bringing up the rear. Also your torrent client will often set up connections to peers that are "choked" and not able to really send you anything. Nevertheless these dud connections will still be tracked by the router.

In my experience the top dozen or so peers provide nearly all the transfer. All the rest aren't worth connecting to.
