Speed fluctuates greatly, can I make it better?

The speed on uTorrent is very irregular, sometimes I have 2mb/s but most of the time I'm trawling down at about 100-200kb. Anything I can do? I have updated trackers list

Set your uTorrent to the configuration in the top answer. This will give you a more stable download platform to work with. If you are using WiFi, you may want to consider hooking up to it with Ethernet instead of OTA. Depending on where your router is located in the home, it can pick up interference as it travels OTA.

When you modify your settings, you want to get the latest verified such as posted in the top answer. You do not want to start a download until you have given the uTorrent app time to configure the changes. It is recommended to wait one hour then start your download.

My downloading is stuck at 99.7 %.

My Torrent downloading is stuck at 99.7 %.

This happens when a person downloads a torrent from another person, and suddenly, the seeder leaves. The person cannot get the entire file, but more people then start downloading from him or her. This results in an incomplete torrent with several people waiting for the original person to come back. You can find another torrent, wait for the person with the whole torrent to show up, contact the copyright owner of the purchased product to get it via other means (if it is a commercial product), or add trackers as shown in this tutorial.
