uTorrent using 50% of my download speed


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I have a problem:

my connection speed is 50/5 Mbit. That said, uTorrent should download with a speed of 6.25 MBps right? It never reached that speed in 2 years, since I upgraded my connection to 50/5Mbit.

It usually downloads with 2.8MBps, sometimes it reaches 3.5MBps for few minutes, but that is MAX.

I wonder why my uTorrent doesnt download with full speed. And please, don't say: probably not enough seeds. I've tried with quadrillions of different torrents, problem persists.

I have run speedtest many times and it shows 49Mb/s DL.

Even if I download anything with chrome, or any other download manager, it reaches to 6MBps, but uTorrent just doesnt.

Screenshot of your speedgraph with Slackware, showing your set limits, and speed test result in speedtest.net?

Or - ubuntu -


Here's the link to Speedtest.net results:


And a link to speedgraph:

upload and download graph and the active torrent in the mainview. with also pref->advanced->gui.graph_overhead and gui.overhead_in_statusbar true. I don't see any limit, so pref->bandwidth too...

UL & DL Graph, with gui.graph_overhead & gui.overhead_in_statusbar set to TRUE:




Hope this helps

Looks fine. Feels like your ISP is capping your BT speed. Try with 300 connections per torrent in your preferences. Plus, you can post a graph when 80% of your download is done (so we can see the numbers... like connected peers).

Also, you can try and test using uTP only, maybe your ISP will not cap that (advanced->bt.transp_disposition = 26)
