A torrent file is a computer file that consists of metadata about file and folders, that are distributed. It also contains the list of the network location of trackers. These trakers are actually the different computers that are used by users to find each other. They form an efficient distribution group called Swarms. A torrent file is simply the information about the files. In this article, I will tell you some ways on  How to increase the speed of your Torrent.

How to increase the speed of your Torrent.

Let’s clear more basics about torrent downloading before we start.

When you download any torrent file, it actually is serving the two parties. One party is peers (downloading users) and another party is of seeders (uploaders of the torrent files). The speed of the torrent download is determined by the seeders. More the seeders greater will be the speed. The quantity of seeders depends on the tie period the file is modified. To be more precise, the new file has more seeders than the old files.

One way to increase the torrent speed is to use VPN (Virtual Private Network). Why VPN? It is because VPN unblocks the speed cap . ISP (Internet Service Provider), when recognizes and downloading or upload in torrents, automatically decreases the torrent speed. As, it is because downloading or uploading on torrents is considered as illegal. In some countries, uploading and downloading torrent files are illegal. So, VPN just  helps user to upload/download torrent files without IPS knowing about it.

You can also change the bandwidth settings to increase your torrent speed. It is said, if upload rate is maximized for every client then downloading speed will be affected. It is not true. The downloading speed depends all on the Internet connection. The one with good internet speed, don’t need to apply these changes. But, the ones with not that good Internet speed can limit the upload speed while torrenting to get good downloading.

6: Global Maximum Number of connected peers per torrent = 256

7: Number of Upload slots per torrent = 13

You can use the above-mentioned steps to change the upload rate of your torrent file and increase the torrent speed.
