Im still trying to figure out this concept (its a little more technical then the padded mailers I used to use).
you implied you have a pretty fast internet connection and as far as I know (not much) your upload speed and download speed do not affect each other but in your case even if they did you are blazing fast at 16-18. I finally upgraded to 12 and am quite content with that

plus it's damn selfish NOT to seed to others, some sites would ban you if you didn't although not here at TTD
