How to Download Torrents Superfast Using Internet Download Manager, IDM

You might have noticed that direct downloads are much faster than torrent downloads. This is because torrent speed is dependent on other peers containing the file. But direct downloads have a direct connection to the server containing the file and hence no speed restrictions. Now it's possible to download your favorite torrent at full speed using the best and the most widely used direct download accelerators in the world which is none other than IDM or Internet Download Manager.

There are 2 good websites that let you download torrent files via IDM, namely : zbigz and boxopus. What these sites do is that they simply download the torrent files to their own servers. Since download speed is not a restriction for them, the requested file is downloaded to their server in a few seconds and now you can download it from them without any hassles whatsoever.

7. Wait for zbigz to ZIP your download.

8. Click download once the zipping is done.
