    Check the number of seeders for the torrent file. Seeders are those who continue to share the file after it has been downloaded. The more the seeders there are the faster the download will be.
    • If you can, try to download from a tracker with a lot of seeders for the file that you want. If you can connect to enough seeders, you can easily max out yourconnection speed.

      Make sure no other programs that use internet connection are running. If the internet connection is solely dedicated to your download then the download will finish faster. Make sure to close YouTube and other download managers. Also check that your computer is not downloading any automatic update while you are downloading files through uTorrent.

      Try connecting the computer directly to the modem or router instead of using WIFI. A lot of signals in the house could interfere with WIFI connection, thus affecting internet speed and uTorrent downloads.
