BitTorrent makes download easy

BitTorrent is getting popular and has been adopted by many publishers to “distribute” to millions of users world wide. So what is that, according to their web site?

“You have something terrific to publish -- a large music or video file, software, a game or anything else that many people would like to have. But the more popular your file becomes, the more you are punished by soaring bandwidth costs. If your file becomes phenomenally successful and a flash crowd of hundreds or thousands try to get it at once, your server simply crashes and no one gets it.

There is a solution to this vicious cycle. BitTorrent, the result of over two years of intensive development, is a simple and free software product that addresses all of these problems.

The key to scaleable and robust distribution is cooperation. With BitTorrent, those who get your file tap into their upload capacity to give the file to others at the same time. Those that provide the most to others get the best treatment in return. ("Give and ye shall receive!")”

Check and the FAQ section, as broadband is spreading wide everywhere including Asia these kind of technology will really help.

You can download and install the software from the site, it has options to set the Maximum Upload limit aswell. Most of the file sharing software works in the BitTorrent way.
