I have noticed that with different ISP torrent speeds are different. I have railwire and rjio connection.
My railwire connection is 10mbps.
Some torrent files give me only 10KBs-20KBs dl speed with railwire while rjio give 500KB+ speed on same torrent. But railwire always give full 10mbps upload speed.
Sometime seeds count show different for files with respect of ISP. Why?

Also notice connected peer number with rjio or railwire. They are different. No peer when connected with rjio.

Here is screenshot of a torrent file.

With Rjio Connection



With Railwire Connection




Why railwire do not give high speed for many torrent files while rjio give its best.

In utorrent settings look for apply rate limit to LAN connection

10.254.x.x ip is LAN IP it belongs to railwire seedbox, they cache it to their server so nextime someone using railwire download that torrent it will be downloaded from railwaire seedbox. This seedbox only serve to railwire users not to the internet.

Jio is not using a double NAT setup I guess so it makes peer connection easier

Railwire is using double NAT setup which makes peer connection hard (closed port + firewall config) or they could be throttling torrent traffic (use encryption in setting but this disable downloading from local ip too) or could be random (use more trackers)

Where exactly? I did not find any such setting.

With jio, there is no peers. But with railwire there are 8 peers connected.
And with railwire all 9 trackers are working fine but with jio only 6 trackers working.

I did not get why there are different peers and trackers with different ISP.
Sometime with railwire i am not able to get more than 20-30KBs speed but with jio with same file i can get up to 500KBs speed. Whats restricting railwire to get full speed.

No ads torrent client you might want to test - qBittorrent Official Website

  • Railwire is using double NAT setup which makes peer connection hard (closed port + firewall config)
  • or they could be throttling torrent traffic (use encryption in setting but this disable downloading from local ip too)
  • or could be random (use more trackers)

In both images only 1 peer IP is a WAN IP which I guess is same as torrent client is same (libtorrent), but in first image it is showing host name so I cannot compare IP.

And the rest of connected peers with railwire connection are local LAN IP which are railwire seedbox and serve to railwire users not JIO users.

And what about trackers? Why 3 trackers not working with rjio and working with railwire? Does rjio block these trackers?

Jio probably has a better and congestion free route to that particular IP. Not to mention they have insane amount of backhaul capacity for a telecom company.
