I can confirm this. I am on a cable connection with 600k upload and 128k
download. If I don't restrict the upload rate I can't use the web at all
whilst bittorrent is running. So, I limit the upload to 4k. Remember, it's
128k *bits* /s and the upload limit is in k *bytes* / s. 128k bits /s = 16k
bytes /s.
