Increase the numbers of uplinks and downlinks you allow (particularly
the latter), increase the available bandwidth again particularly for
downlinks, and increase the bandwidth per connection. I think the
defaults in most torrent clients are rather low, they are in Azureus IIRC.

In Azureus, you can do all this on a per-torrent basis, with a
right-click on various fields in the information box(es).
