Expected speed


Recommended Posts

My connection is:

1.5Mbps d/l and 96kbps u/l.

What d/l speed should I expect from well seeded torrents?

on a torrent from openoffice.org I get an average of 65kbps with a peak of 90kbps.

on another post in the forum a guy had a speed of 150kbps.

my settings are:

maximum number of connected peers per torrent: 74

number of upload slots per torrent: 4

use additional upload slots: checked

Enable scraping,DHT

Preallocate disk space: checked

net.low_cpu: false

net.half_open: 40 (patched to 50)

peer.lazy_bitfield: true

peer.resolve_country: true

everything else is default.

can I boost my d/l speed with other settings? (I have read many posts regarding settings on the forum before asking)

thank you for you help.


I'm using µtorrent 1.2

How many peers did you connect to when you tried out the OpenOffice torrent?

Do you have a "NAT error" message in the statusbar?

Did you use any other downloading/uploading application at the same time? (Sorry for this stupid question, but I just want to narrow down the causes)

Edit: The settings seems to be fine in my eyes, so you should be able to get speeds around 150-175kB/s

I did, although it never gets that high.

Merged Post(s):

UPDATE: I switched to µtorrent 1.2.1 (yay) and now things are looking much better.

I'm still not getting 150Kbps like that other guy, but I get:

an average speed of 115kbps

a peak of: 135kbps

57 seeds, 2 peers.

well done on the new release, guys. can't wait for the next one... :P

Still strange about the peeramount though. On the instant I start this torrent (2.0.0 English for Windows) I see 280 seeds and 60 peers (not leechers). The torrent for 2.0.139 isn't as fast yet because it's a pretty new release, so I would suggest using 2.0.0 as a reference.

I'll paste a direct link to the torrent to avoid any misunderstandings:
