    that would depend on the number of peers.....
    however, my testing with a large peer base (over 200) i averaged about 160 kbs.

    You won't be happy until they actually enforce a cap on all of us, will you?

    Torrent clients are really bad for a network. He may be averaging 160kb/sec.. but he's got 200 connections open.. that taxes networking equipment, which is why most network providers don't like torrents..

    May be fun for testing and all, but I wouldn't suggest leaving this open all the time..

    yes, it is for fun. but it really does show the power of this little phone. i am not recommending downloading the newest DVD from a public tracker, but the fact that it can do it is awesome.

    I don't get it. Why torrent on a Pre? Most files come zipped or rarred and you can't unzip/rar them with your Pre anyway. Now a front end for a torrent client on your PC/Laptop would be something to get me all sorts of excited since the uTorrent UI doesn't seem to want to work with my pre's browser.

    files that natively play on the Pre are never rar'd. (mp3, mp4)

    I think you should leave downloading large files up to your home or work internet connection. If sprint sees a lot of data usage they will limit the amount of data usage you can have on your lines (like verizon and at&t have), then we will all be screwed. So have the rest of us in mind!

    I agree, it's a cool exercise to run a torrent client on the Pre, just because you can. However, a frontend for Transmission or another cross-platform torrent client running on your home PC would be fantastic.

    I'd rather have a VNC client..... That would be better.
