1) Stop and restart bittorrent.  Sometimes this helps, other times waiting
is enough for it to speed up.

If your upload rate is lower than you expect, your ISP may be interfering:

2) Use a different port range.

3) Use Azureus with its encryption.

If your upload rate is about as much as you're allowed (ADSL is tight,
while cable modems seem to be really tight):

4) Cap your upload rate at about half its maximum.  Use the --help option
to get the option to use.  In bittorrent-curses it is --max_upload_rate
<kB/s>, default 20 kB/s.
