Let me explain how torrents work buddy...

It's basically like downloading a book...what you are downloading are "pages" of the books ( called parts ) now torrent's speed is based on how many people ( peers ) are downloading the same thing you're downloading in the whole world. So if you are the only one downloading it you will get a speed of 0.0Kb/s which is no speed at all

Of course having a good Internet Connection increases the speed too

While downloading torrents via Mobile is highly discouraged you could try underclocking it to 500Mhz when downloading

I think he knows it - his problem is that his tipo downloads torrents slower than his L
