My downloads are slow. Why?

The main thing setting your download speeds is your location. Seedr servers are located in the Netherlands. Some ISP's choose bad routes between eachother -- thus killing your possible high speeds.

The Solution

To solve your slow download speeds you can do two things:

  1. Get a download manager. By opening multiple connections you will get significantly better speeds. We recommend FDM.
  2. Choose an alternative download location on your Seedr Ultra menu(The lightning bolt icon on the top right of your file manager). We offer international locations so you have alternative routes in such cases.

Please be aware that free accounts are limited to up to 2 connections. Premium accounts get up to 8 parallel connections. For details go to

    Hi, my downloads have started becoming slow since a few days ago, and this is the 2nd time this happened. I use IDM, but it's happening to any torrent files I try and download. I've checked whether it could be my ISP, but it's definitely something on Seedr's end. Can you please check my account to ensure that I'm not being given restricted download speeds? And for the record, I only ever download one torrent file at a time.
