Increase uTorrent download speed

UTorrent uploads more than it reports.jpg

If you’ve finally found the torrent you’re looking for, but it’s taking hours or even days to download, you know how annoying slow downloads can be. Slow torrent download speeds may be the result of a lack of seeds and a slow internet connection, but there are ways to tweak your uTorrent settings and optimize your connections for maximum download speeds. Adding new, faster torrent trackers is another good way to breathe new life back into a slow or dead torrent.

 

Adding new torrent trackers can add new seeds and peers to your connection, possibly resulting in faster download speeds. These trackers change and close often, so adding new, open trackers is essential to optimizing your downloads.

  1. 1
    Open your torrent using uTorrent.

    Start the download, and check the speed under the “Down Speed” tab.

    Right-click on the download name, and click “Properties”.

    Enter the trackers.

    Under the “General” tab, locate the “Trackers” box. Scroll down to the end of the list, and press enter to make a new line. Copy and paste these trackers into the box. It’s OK if you have duplicates – uTorrent will ignore those ones. Don’t erase the existing trackers, either. The more trackers, the more chances to increase your speed.

    Check your speeds again.

    After a few minutes, check your download speeds. They should increase with the addition of new trackers. In this photo I’m only using USB dongle with 3g connection, so its not that fast but its faster than my friend’s he is using DSL.
