Now let’s get started, if you read my blog post Best BitTorrent Clients you would’ve known that torrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used for distributing large amount of data, so since this protocol is a peer-to-peer sharing protocol, you can only give and receive at same rate. The way that torrents work is that it allows you to download at about your upload speed. So if you are uploading at a fast speed you will also download at same speed.

So what if there is a way to trick the torrent client to think you are uploading at a fast speed so you can download at a fast speed too? This was the idea I had until I found a perfect application that can do this easily. GreedyTorrent is an application that runs hand in hand with other torrent clients, GreedyTorrent will allow you tweak your upload speed so you can download at a faster speed.
