The thing with bittorrent is that you need a number of people using it
to get benefits, and you get better d/l rates when uploading. Usually a
bittorrent download starts rather slowly and speed increases later on.

Regarding your earlier question: it is uploading segments you already
have to other bittorrent users. Go and read how bittorrent works
(http://www.bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/).
