uTorrent 2.0 (uTP) – Improved BitTorrent Protocol Avoids The Need For ISP Throttling

Written By Sam on 3 November 2009

There are many people who love to download Movies, Songs, Videos, Software, Games and many other things using BitTorrents. Though people love BitTorrents, it was always a problem with the ISP’s as P2P networks consume a lot of bandwidth. But now everyone will be very happy as BitTorrent Inc. is planning to launch a redesigned implementation of the BitTorrent protocol. The re-designed BitTorrent protocol automatically senses congestion and adjusts the download and upload speeds.


uTorrent 2.0 or uTP will optimize the download experience based on the network traffic. uTP is a new and improved implementation of the BitTorrent protocol which is mainly designed for network friendliness. This new uTorrent 2.0 will eliminate the need for ISPs to throttle BitTorrent traffic in their networks. uTP measures the time a packet takes to get sent from peer A to peer B and will detect congestion anywhere on that path. Once a congestion is detected it is automatically taken care by the protocol. This new feature of uTP is currently being tested in uTorrent v2.0 beta.
