uTorrent is no doubt one of the most popular and widely used torrent clients in the world. With a wide variety of files available for download on torrents, one might go overboard when downloading files and actually cross the bandwidth usage limit set by the ISP.
There have been instances when the ISP has temporarily banned users (even on unlimited plan) or charge extra money for downloading excessively via torrents.
Luckily, the latest version of uTorrent – v2.0 has included a new feature called Transfer Cap, which helps you keep a tab on amount of data used in last 31 days. It allows you to completely stop uTorrent data transfer if cap limit is exceeded.
This is a nice addition which helps those who need to cap the bandwidth usage without having to constantly check the data transfer every other day. It is always better to set the transfer cap a bit below the limit set by the ISP so that your other browsing needs are taken care of.
BitTorrent is a protocol that enables fast downloading of large files using minimum Internet bandwidth. It costs nothing to use and includes no spyware or pop-up advertising.
BitTorrent maximizes transfer speed by gathering pieces of the file you want and downloading these pieces simultaneously from people who already have them. This process makes popular and very large files, such as videos and television programs, download much faster than is possible with other protocols.
