I am sure like every torrent downloader you too may have wished if you could double or triple your torrent downloading speed.
You probably did spend hours trying it our too but couldn’t. Well today could be the day you finally get your wish because in this article I have covered 5 ways that should definitely help you increase download speed to some extent.
Apart from increasing speed, if you’re also interested in keeping your anonymity then you should get a seedbox hosting server.
Remember do not try to implement all the following steps, just the once that work for you
Opt for the right torrent client
There are numerous numbers of torrent clients available on the internet which can often make it confusing as to which one you should opt for.
I would advise you to opt for torrent clients like uTorrent, Vuze, Bit Torrent etc. In case you still doubt as to which torrent clients are the best a simple google search will give you a lot of answers.
Remember to keep your torrent client up to date. Sometimes it is because the torrent client is not up to date that the download speeds are quite slow
Look for healthy torrents
Opting for a healthy torrent file I as important as choosing a good torrent client if not more. Always remember that you keep tabs on the leechers and seeders when searching for a torrent.
A healthy torrent is one where the number of seeders is greater than the number leechers. This ensures faster downloading time.
Speeds with unhealthy torrents are limited and thus you do not get speed beyond a certain point whatever you do. Thus resulting in slower downloads.
Make sure Firewall is not causing a problem
One of the most common reasons for slower torrent download is your firewall. Sometime your firewall does all the damage by blocking of your clients connections, resulting is slower downloads. Solution to this problem is quick and easy.
All you’re going to have to do is, in the firewall setting add your torrent client as an exception and you will automatically notice the download speed increasing. Remember; do not turn off the firewall completely as that may put your pc at risk.
Monitor your upload rate
Often torrent users remember to set the download rate to unlimited but forget that there is an upload rate as well. You might have forgotten about it as well at times.
Remember if leave your upload rate high it will hinder the download speed so I would advise you to keep it really low. In case you need a high upload rate sometime remember to reduce it next time you start downloading.
Keep Tweaking ports
You don’t necessarily have to keep tweaking them in case you are not getting a high download. Firstly check for other issues then try tweaking the port values. Sometimes the random port values do not provide a good download speed.
In such a situation you don’t have to worry too much just try and tweak them. You can input any number above 10000. If you’re not sure just remember the random value and put it back again.
