Uploading problems

You'll probably find that you can upload, the problem is that your connection is firewalled, so other peers cannot connect to you unless you connect to them first, therefore bitcomet has no way of knowing that they are trying to download from you.

The best solution would be to get an internet connection that allows incoming connections.

You've told us nothing beyond the type of network connection you have -- no hardware, no OS, no version, not even a description of the issues you're encountering. Surely it's obvious that nobody can possibly help you without even the most basic information?

Your listening port is blocked because of the reasons I mentioned previously. You don't have a full internet connection so you'll never get good results from torrents unless you can get them to give you a dedicated port to use, or get a different internet connection.

This won't prevent you from uploading, but anyone who wants you to send them data will get no reply from you because their connection is blocked by your ISP. If you connect to them first, then they request data, you'll be able to upload.

One less then optimal solution is to use NAT Traversal (available in bitcomet version 1.02 and some prior versions). It will enable you to get some remote connections, but is far from a solution to the problem.

The only real solution would be to get a different internet provider, however as far as I know, all cellular connections have this problem.

You're wrong about that. A blocked listen port doesn't mean you can't upload. It means that others can't connect to you, they have to wait for you to connect to them, if, when and as you do. The result of that means that you will have fewer peers and fewer good ones, and you'll have to do a lot of hunting and asking before you stumble across one that wants some bytes from you.

It will, depending on the size of the swarm, eventually happen, that you'll get a little upload speed. Not very much, though, or for very long.

There's nothing that you can do about it, besides changing the type of connection you use.

Things would be a lot faster for you if the peers who wanted data from you, could contact you and ask you instead of waiting for you to find them. That won't ever happen with your current connection.
