    basically dependant on your connection. eg; i have a 15 mbit down and 5 up connection so i can download a lot at once

    but usually downloading one thing at a time is faster tthan 2, i never go more than 3 files while on bittorrent

    It could be slow if there aren't many people seeding the file

    your download is proportional to your upload speed

    i used azureus and limit my upload to 20kbps and i get a d/l of around 30-40kbps
