Increase Torrent Download Speed (100% Working)

In this article, we are going to share a few best methods to improve torrent download speed. These simple methods will make your torrent download speed up to 50 – 100% faster. So, let’s check out.

1. Use a Lightweight Torrent Client

Most of the popular torrent clients like BitTorrent, uTorrent, etc. show ads. Although ads don’t interrupt your torrenting experience, they slow down the download speed. So, if you want to increase the Torrent downloading speed, make sure to use an ad-free torrent client.

Also, check whether the torrent client is bloated with apps or other features. We always prefer to use open-source torrent clients to get maximum available downloading speed.

2. Add an Exception to Firewall

If you have set up Windows Firewall on your device, then you need to add a Firewall exception on your Torrent client. Windows firewall got the ability to block the incoming BitTorrent connection. So, it can slow down the downloading speed.

Add an Exception to Firewall

To add an exception to Windows Firewall, open your torrent client and head to the Options > Preferences > Connections. Enable the option ‘Add Windows Firewall Exception’. Also, enable the option ‘Enable UPnP port mapping’.

3. General Settings to optimize Torrent Downloads

After making the above changes, you need to make a few more changes to the Torrent Client. Just open your favorite torrent client, and navigate to the Options > Preferences > General.

On the General tab, enable the three options – Append .!ud to incomplete files, Pre-allocate all files, and Prevent standby if there are active torrents.

Enable the three options

Once done, click on the ‘Apply’ button and restart the torrent client.
