Heck ya it is! I usually average around 30, but thats usually more cause people cap their upload speeds so much. Which is probably the problem you're experiencing. I usually leave my torrent program running, and the upload uncapped, but when I see that i am uploading at +30 kb/s for a period of time I usually cap it around 5 so i don't anger my almighty ISP.

Probably the same thing is happening to you. Check what the dl speeds are from all your seeds. They're probably pretty low.

Karma/rep is always appreciated
