BitTorrent max speeds only 3.5mb/s???

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am trying to download a torrent with 31,000 seeders and only 1500 leachers. A lot of the seeders are located in the US. My speeds are 450mbits/sec down and 400mbits/sec up(http://www.speedtest.net/result/2987234210.png). When I download from Google Drive or Amazon AWS I usually get speeds of 40MBytes a sec (55 peek), however, when I use BitTorrent, it takes about 10 seconds to find the peers, then it starts slowly accelerating to 3.5mbps (took 25 secs to accelerate), and once it gets to 3.5MBps it stops, in properties of the torrent, the max download speed is set to 0. I tried downloading a torrent with more seeders and less leachers as a test and I got the same result. I tried using a different computer, and I still got the same result.

As I said, when I use Chrome or Internet Explorer I get download speeds of 40MBytes/s (not mbits, mbytes)

 

BitTorrent transfers are not sequential. If your drive can't keep up with the 3.5mbyte/sec semi-random piece placement, it can't keep up.

 

How fast do torrents from http://slackware.com/getslack/torrents.php get to (with NO other torrents running)

Irrelevant to my point. Normal browser downloads, regardless of the browser, are still sequential downloads.
