Learn How to Increase uTorrent Download Speed

To be able to download it is necessary to have a link that directs to the file that is on the server. Unlike this method BitTorrent shares files across a network of computers that are seeding (seeds) the file to be downloaded.

To have speed gain in your downloads it is necessary to see the amount of machines that are sowing (seeds) the file. The more Seeds the faster your download will be.

A great advantage in using this program is not the speed gain, but rather the possibility of being able to pause or even stop the download and then restart from the point it was. In case you need to shut down the computer do not worry the download will restart as soon as the computer is turned on.
