How can I increase my bandwidth?

I am operating 2 tor-servers: one under FreeBSD and other under Debian
Their parameteres:
1.  uname -a
 8.1-STABLE FreeBSD 8.1-STABLE #0 r34M: Wed Nov 24 10:02:09 IRKT 2010
RAM 512 Mb
root at
 Tor v0.2.2.20-alpha
OpenSSL 0.9.8n 24 Mar 2010
non-exit node
2. uname -a
Linux 2.6.18-028stab070.4-ent #1 SMP Tue Aug 17
19:03:05 MSD 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
RAM 786432 kB
CPU 502.313 MHz
Tor version
OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007

As it can be shown from the Tor Statistics the bandwidth of the first
node is more that one of the second:

What can be a cause of that and how can I increase the bandwidth of my
Debian node?
P.S. I have set the next setting in the '/etc/tor/torrc' of both of them:
RelayBandwidthRate 200 KBytes
RelayBandwidthBurst 400 KBytes
