slow only in the evenings


Recommended Posts

Bell ADSL ISP in Canada throttles BitTorrent heavily during peak evening hours. That's what's causing the huge speed drops.

Reducing total connections and turning off unneeded extra features in uTorrent that cost extra bandwidth (DHT, LPD, Resolve IPs -- right-click in PEERS window of a torrent) may increase the download+upload speeds slightly during those hours.

2nd link in my signature may give better results during those hours as well.

Considering you probably have a monthly bandwidth usage limit, you're better off to only use uTorrent after 2 AM but before 4 PM.
