Do P2P uploads cost Exetel?
Since I don't pay for it, Is it worth me running my torrent client in upload-only to make available the Linux ISOs and other legal content that I've downloaded? I imagine this would benefit Exetel if other customers wanted the content, but some or all of it may be cached in Exetel's network anyway, and most of the connections I see aren't local.
Any thoughts or knowledgeable views? Sorry if this is already answered somewhere but I haven't seen it.

I'm pretty sure it will have only a minimal effect to Exetel. On an aggregate basis, the binding issue is the download, since most users use many times more downloads than uploads, hence the uploads are effectively "free". Plus, as you've noticed, Exetel have the P2P cache
