How to increase Downloading Speed using BitComet

Sometimes, even after having a good internet connection, the download speed is not up to the mark. This is because your browser establishes a single connection to download the file. However, if you increase the number of connections, you can download at high speed. This is what download managers do. Similarly, you can use BitComet to increase your downloading speed using multiple connections.

DownloadStudio, Internet Download Manager, etc. are commonly used download managers. However, BitComet not only allows you to speed up your downloads but also doubles as a Torrent downloading application. Plus it’s completely free and doesn’t require any subscription or trial. Besides that, it also provides other features like resuming or restarting broken downloads, etc.
