uTorrent Speed up

You may have noticed that the speed of uTorrent is always slower than your maximum connection speed and Internet Download Manager (IDM), that's because the download speed of your torrent depends on the ratio of seeders and leechers.

The more people are seeding the torrent the more speed you get, seeding means to upload small chunks of the file to the server so that others can download it.

But even if the seeders are more than the leechers it does not mean that the speed will be as fast as IDM, because IDM is an accelerator while uTorrent is just a downloader.

But never mind, there are some settings that can boost your torrent speed, follow the guidelines below:
