By Gunjan Roy Updated

A few years ago, U-torrent had become a very popular and common household name in the world of torrents. U-torrent is a popular Bit torrent client providing flawless free services to many users. It is a fast, light-weight torrent downloader that has some standard features like as bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading etc. U-torrent uses the peer to peer technology to download movies and audio files. Here every machine acts as the server. In this article, I am going to write about best U-torrent alternatives.

Initially, U-torrent is very good but of late it was making some changes. It was making some simple change to its icon and employing a lot of Adwords and ads to its site. Banner ads, sidebar ads, and promotional content. For this purpose, users started to avoid U-torrent and gradually there was a need to find U-torrent alternatives.
