I have been experiencing very low download speeds for quite some time now and went searching for answers. Then i ran accross this sentence that has changed my downloading speeds drastically. 1. This is very obvious and should be done already Port Forward 2. This is so simple and i cannot believe i didnt do it before. Limit yourself to one download at a time! i would have like 8 things going at once and would only get like 5 kB/s. Once i only allowed 1 download at a time i started getting 120 kB/s! also look for torrents with alot of seeders and peers.
