    I am currently downloading a bittorrent file. I have a broadband connection and the maximum i tend to get is about 35kbps, this is fine. but when a download reaches over 30ish the internet slows right down. What i would like to know is:

    Is it possible to cap the download at roughly 28-30 kbps so my internet browsing is still at a reasonable rate?

    I will be more than greatful for any help.

    tom.

    there are multiple clients out that that allow you to adjust your download and what really kills your browsing, upload speeds.

    What torrent client do you use?

    What is the best one that lets me control my upload/download speeds?
