The BitTorrent Client is an application that allows you to use the BitTorrent Protocol for downloading and uploading a variety of large file types quickly.
Where normal downloading through a browser is done linearly, what makes the Bittorrent protocol unique is that it allows parts of a file to be downloaded simultaneously from different sources and out-of-order. The Client assembles these parts into the complete file. Once a part of the file is downloaded, the BitTorrent Client makes that part available to other BitTorrent users (peers). When the file is completely downloaded, the Client will seed the file, making the entirety available for peers.
Many clients exist for torrenting, each with its own advantages. We recommend downloading only the BitTorrent or uTorrent Clients. While some other clients may offer attractive features, BitTorrent does not support clients beyond those we recommend.
The BitTorrent Client offers many advanced features that may be confusing to the user. The Client is configured correctly when it is installed, and should require no configuration changes under normal network conditions.
Ultra-fast file delivery
Our technology breaks big files down into small pieces. The files are then downloaded, piece by piece, from one or many different sources. Since the files are broken down into tiny bites, you use less bandwidth. Which means your downloads move a lot faster.
Free, unlimited downloading
With BitTorrent, there are no limits to the number of files you can download, or the amount of data you can move.
Built-in bandwidth booster
BitTorrent auto-adjusts bandwidth usage, based on your network and Internet connection, to ensure fast file delivery. Your downloads run in the background. Which means they’ll never slow down video chats or game play.
Download from anywhere with BitTorrent Remote
Have a torrent you want to download, but you’re away from your home computer? Want to download a documentary for movie night, before you leave the office?
