However full benefit of the application is limited for Developing word where the internet connections have not reached their maximum limits.
Dr Umar Saif and his research team from LUMS have developed a client to specifically address this need for having a usable Bit Torrent Client for low bandwidth connections and it addresses the issue by creating clusters of low bandwidth clients.
Some very impressive stats mentioned on the project home page are
BitMate outperforms vanilla BitTorrent by as much as 70% in download performance, while at the same time improving upload contribution by as much as 1000%! BitMate also outperforms strategic clients like BitTyrant in low-bandwidth conditions by as much as 60% in download performance (without cheating).
You can read about the project and its details as well as download the client from project home page.
Update: and it gets better. The effort gets highlighted in New York Times, and according to Dr Umar Saif
This may be the first time research at LUMS has made it to NYT
