Slow download speed


Recommended Posts


I am new to utorrent so please bear with me.

I started downloaded a torrent and was enjoying speeds up to 150kb/s. Now I am running at 5kb/s and it is avail 7.999

Why has the speed now lowered so much and how can i improve it??

What is the avail field for? Sorry I didnt check it when i was at the higher end of download speed.
