Bandwidth Shortage -- Please Use Bittorrent

Recommended Posts

For those who don't know already - there are many BitTorrent clients out there, but just a few are really recommendable.

I'd recommend qBittorrent, Deluge or Transmission (in that order, personal preference of course). They all are easy to use, don't use too many system resources or carry ads that take on your PCs performance (other than the usual suspects aka BitTorrent/uTorrent). Plus all of the three clients can be used on many operating systems - Windows, Linux, Mac... you name it!


If you have a connection that has bandwidth limits (pretty common for 4G/LTE contracts), consider that downloading these torrents means more than just 'downloading' - remember that you are uploading data to other people at the same time!
It can be likely that your ISP entirely blocks or throttles BitTorrent-traffic - it is always better to inform yourself before downloading!


Last but not least - the torrents provided here are legal to download, so no piracy involved in here at all!
Additionally, if you don't have a connection with limited bandwidth, your ISP blocks/throttles BitTorrent-traffic or your connection is just fast enough to browse the internet - seed as much as you can. Give something back to the community - without seeders there is no working torrent for FreeMeshX! We all know how awful slow speeds are, especially with big downloads such as FreeMeshX, being around 100GB already... so seed back if you can!

Still seeing healthy amounts of seeding. You guys are great for keeping the original torrents seeded and alive!
