uTorrent Download Accelerator

How do you test if a download accelerator is really working? One way would be to download the same files twice. Once with the download accelerator enabled and once without. While this is surely not the most scientific method of testing it should provide enough data to come to a conclusion. The uTorrent Download Accelerator was mentioned on Madhur Kapoor's Blog. It promises accelerated downloads thanks to a powerful traffic optimization algorithm that is working in the background.

The developer's website does not really go into much detail about the optimization but it is safe to say that the uTorrent preferences are not changed by it. There is also information about a paid version which is said to improve the performance even more. Again without additional information on what is being optimized.

The test was conducted with two downloads of 201 and 34 Megabytes. The unaccelerated download reached an average download speed of 756.5 and 203.2 Megabytes while the accelerated download capped in at 654.2 and 142.8 Megabytes. The acceleration of the downloads had the opposite effect. It could be that the test system was already optimized way better than the software could do it or it could be attributed to different download sources. The last possibility would be that the software is not working as advertised.

It the uTorrent download accelerator working? Apparently not on the test system. It could be worth a try if you have abysmal download rates in the bittorrent client. What's your take after trying the software?

I personally do not recommend to use the program, first because it does not really explain what its doing or changing on the system, and second because of the tests that I conducted that came to the result that it did not accelerate the downloading at all.

    These things won’t work! They never do work! They never will work! They can’t create false clients. You need peers and seeds of actual DLs.

    The 0 upload speed won’t help. While (atleast some versions of) uT does pose a restriction if the upload speed is set too small (v1.6 displays ‘restricted download’ if the speed is for example 4kB/s) the design of the network is what those who don’t want to share should be worried about – clients preffer to upload to peers whom they can download from. Thus if upload is set to 0 then most clients will find some other peer to whom they’ll rather upload than to you. Only seeds don’t mind, as they upload to those who can download fastest.

    As for the program – obviosly crap. Even if it indeed does something it’s useless by uTorrent, which allows to set pretty much every option that somehow could affect speeds. Rather than trying external programs uT’s own Speed Guide is a complete solution, optimizing settings for actual Internet line capacity.

    Does this even work? I ran it for a good few minutes. uTorrent continued to download in the background but nothing updated out here.

    >What if , theoretically speaking, hacked into one and configured it to unlimited download and o upload?

    There are plenty of clients around that do this practically speaking. :)

    Hardly polite to other peers and fast way to get yourself banned on closed trackers.

    There are some opensource torrent clients available. What if , theoretically speaking, hacked into one and configured it to unlimited download and o upload?
    Also I have a friend who has absymal internet plan, Unlimited with 64 kbps!
    The poor thing keeps downloading all day/night. At any time he has aroud 5 torrents downloading at the speed of 5kbps

    I stay well way from these “magical” utilities, even more so if they’re undocumented – for those who feel their bittorrent speed isn’t optimized I’d recommend something like this guide:

    Accelerators of this kind are obvious scam. Good guide on tweaking settings for your client is first and last thing that can really impove torrenting (a bit).
