Does Seeding Take Broadband?


Recommended Posts

Since you seem to be in New Zealand, I fear the answer may be yes.

You probably have a metered internet service which charges you EXTRA if you exceed some tiny amount of bandwidth used per month.

uTorrent uses a LOT of bandwidth, if given a chance.

1 GigaBYTE of bandwidth is only ~12-13 KiloBYTES/second running 1 day straight. And if that's your upload speed, even your download speed will likely be ~0.2 KiloBYTES/second to keep the upload going while seeding. That's normally a tiny amount, but over a day that's about 17 MegaBYTES.
