im downloading at half speed!!!


Recommended Posts

This is P2P. You're not downloading from a server. You're downloading from people just like you, with connections just like yours. What you get, they must give.

Your download speed is always critically dependent on the swarm, the amount and quality of other peers also interested in this torrent. When you get a piece from one of them, you share that piece with several others, so you're always uploading and downloading at the same time. Even if you don't do anything to interfere in this process, actual speed is always going to be highly variable depending on the size and nature of the swarm.
