Don't use 6881 as port settings, almost all the trackers tell to avoid it. try 
in the range of 10000+ (i am using 46500 for example).
Also from "Plugins" settings, enable "UPnP" plugin and check that ports are 
properly forwarded or not.
This way I am acheiving almost 90-95% of bandwidth utilization in torrent
