Seedcafe was one of the first seedboxes I tried, I initially signed up to package 1 for $15 a month which restricted the max torrents to 6. This was a problem as I came to find out later. In order to seed to full capacity you need to have many different seeds active, ideally over 15. So you can build your ratio as high as possible.
With just 6 torrents there were long periods where I was not seeding anything. I contacted admins about the inactive torrents several times, the admins upgraded my account for free to package 2 which allowed unlimited torrents. Which allowed me to add as many torrents as I wanted, thereby maximising my upload speed.
Summary of Seedcafe
Max download speed: 1.9MB/s (burst at 4MB/s)*
Max upload speed: 1.7MB/s (burst at 4MB/s)*
*Burst is the occasional periods when the max speed, goes beyond the stable max speed for a couple of minutes or seconds (usually the latter)

Idle with zero connection
The jury is still out on this one, as I’m not able to tell whether it’s just my bad torrent selection or if it’s down to Seedcafe. But I’ve gone through long periods where there is no torrent activity on my account at all. Just to be sure I tested this by adding the torrents onto my utorrent client on my laptop and I was able to connect and begin downloading.
I’m not sure what WebGUI they are using but it’s very basic, doesn’t even have a preferences option, so you cannot unpack torrents, you cannot set up a watch folder to drop your .torrent files in, it doesn’t even display the tracker message.
Not really 100Mb/s
The services is advertised as 100Mb/s, therefore speeds should max at 12.5MB/s. I was able to get a max of 4MB/s that’s less than a third of the stated speed.
Good customer service
With that in mind, I was able to contact the staff and they were very speedy with responding and were knowledgeable with torrents. They helped me out many times, and even gave me a complementary upgrade to a slightly more expensive plan.
