On the Frederick's server I was getting 35/1.5 last night and 38/3 this am from NY. I wouldn't trust their upload as a good test of anything. I am on 50/25 and usually get 30-31 on the upload to a decent server.
I get 28 upload or so to the Reliable hosting server in Baltimore and 31 upload or so to the Comcast server in Balitmore.
I find with torrent software I get better performance after I make sure the program is allowed full access through my firewall on my pc. I don't think I had to do any PF's in my router, so I would check that, and also the utorrent support forums. There are a lot of tweaks you can do to utorrent to make it perform better.
