Problem : I live in a country where carriers provide mobile data plans which they offer for 5 dollars; I get the 10GB "night time data package." So I tried to download some torrents from my PC using iOS personal Hotspot feature. But all the time I try to download a torrent it gives like 1KBps speed or less.
I've changed settings in uTorrent according to my internet speed but it gives slow speed. When I try to download large/small files directly from a website (web server) it gives full speed my carrier supports like 40Mbps. I have the problem only when downloading the torrent.
What I've found so far : I thought (still think) that would be a restriction with iOS and contacted apple support team and asked them about that. But they said iOS doesn't slow down speed when downloading a file through personal hotspot and said probably my carrier throttling my speed. But still I think iOS slows down my Internet speed because of a clear reason which I've explained below. So I want know whether iOS slows down my Internet speed when I downloading a torrent or my carrier throttling when downloading a torrent.
Reasons to think Apple may do that : I've downloaded torrents before using hotspot feature like 1 year ago. But several things now have changed.
That time I used a Nokia phone which clearly have no hotspot restrictions.
That was about 1 year ago. So carriers might have taken actions to throttle speed when downloading torrent.
What I want to know :
Does iOS slow down internet speed when downloading torrents?
What could be the reason of slow torrent speed on this situation? ( torrents basically have several hundred seeders)
What actions can I take to get full speed?
