How to Increase Torrent Download Speed:
Step 1: You should choose the best torrent client like: Bit Torrent, Bit Comet, and uTorrent, etc.
By choosing the best torrent client allows you to download a file in maximum speed. There are many torrent clients available in market, just go for the best.
Step 2: You should choose torrent with good trackers, peers and seeds.
Choosing the right torrent will allow to download your required file easily and fastly. If you choose a weak torrent that has less number of tracker, seeds and peers then it is you may not get fast downloading speed. Always download a torrent which has at least one seeds. Trackers are too important factor which should be cared for before choosing a torrent file. Check the properties of your torrent that you can find in the list of trackers. If a particular torrent has weak seeds and peers then you can re-announce the same to increase its speed.
Step 3: You should change the settings of your torrent client.
Just change the settings of your torrent client, so that the downloading speed could be increased. To do so, change few settings like “Bandwidth”, port is also helpful in increasing the torrent downloading speed.

As you all know that torrent clients use the torrent protocol which is peer-to-peer files sharing protocol to download any file. Even the P2P protocol is best among all others to download any file but some times downloading a file using other protocol can help increasing the download speed.
Step 5: You can increase the number of Max Half Open TCP connections.
The Max Half Open TCP connections specify that how many connections a torrent client should attempt to establish simultaneously at any given time. Operating Systems like Windows XP-SP2and newer, limits this to a default of 10.As torrents need a large number of simultaneous connections you can increase your torrent downloading speed by changing this figure.
A patch has been available for a while from LvlLord which modifies the TCPIP.sys file in Windows to allow a higher number of TCP connections.
After running the patch, you have to change your torrent client settings also. In uTorrent go to:
“Options > Preferences > Advanced > net.max_halfopen.
Set any numbers from 50 to 100, don’t use more than that, as specified. Also keep checking “TCPIP.sys” for cross verifying the number of Max Half Open TCP connections.
Important: You must understand that you cannot get more downloading speed than your bandwidth [max internet speed]. So, this tutorial can just optimize your downloads to the best speed provided by your Internet service provider.
