    1) Your internet is crap
    2) Few seeders
    3) Downloads capped?
    Also, I recommend Deluge over that one.

    That's with my VPN on my phone.

    It shows 5 seeds.

    I'll try Deluge also.

    5 seeds is not much, tbh.

    I had issues with UTorrent and my VPN too, forgot how I fixed it. I've switched to a different client since.

    Ugh.... Comp shows 8mb/s speed.... Wtf man?!?
    Upload was a measly 500kb/s.
    It'll take 6 months to upload a YT video!

    How can you even argue with 8mb/s of download and 500kb/s of upload? Like cmon, I get 800kb/s of Download and 50kb/s of upload, and do I argue? No. Cherish what you have, because others would want to have it.

    How? That's easy. I just spent $1200 to build a rig for video editing, and I spend $180 a month on cable and Internet. I didn't pay for premium Internet to get average speeds. My iPhone shows 5mb/s upload, so my brand new computer should be close to that. It's not a VPN issue, as the speed tests were ran with the VPN running on both my iPhone and comp. I just uninstalled cFosspeed, so I'll restart and see how that goes.

    have you tried qBitTorrent? And why are you using a VPN? If you're using a vpn because of your provider, they can probably still throttle torrents that are tunneled through a vpn.

    Get a seedbox.
    If you're having a VPN, I can recommend a seedbox (especially on private torrent networks)

    Stop using utorrent and use either qbittorrent or some other client.

    I'm using a VPN so I can seed also. If you want to PM me @DinohScene Id like to try that seed box. I've been using Deluge, and got up to 1.2Mb/s

    Try downloading a torrent that you know for sure has lots of seeds so we can discount the torrent as the culprit.
    And I haven't used deluge, but I can vouch for qbittorrent, I started using it after utorrent went to shit and it's worked perfectly since.

    + 1 for qbittorrent.

    I use that + a vpn and assuming there are enough seeds, I max my connection (8MB/s or so).
