What is TopBT ?
TopBT is a topology-aware BitTorrent client. Compared with current widely-used BitTorrent clients, such as Vuze, BitTorrent, and uTorrent, the unique feature of TopBT is, it actively discovers its network proximities to its connected peers. Based on the network proximities, it can save network traffic by downloading data from near peers. Additionally, TopBT also attempts to improve network transmission rates to its peers, so that it can download fast. TopBt has been frequently and widely used worldwide.
