The Best Seedbox For 2019

by Justin Thomas •

What is a Seedbox?

A seedbox is a dedicated, high-speed server for downloading files. Most people rent seedboxes to achieve fast torrent or Usenet transfers. Typically, you will see speeds from 100Mbps (8MB/s) to 10Gbps (1250MB/s) on a seedbox.

A seedbox also allows you to avoid ISP throttling and bypass eavesdroppers like the RIAA or MPAA.

Not everyone needs a seedbox — downloading directly from Usenet works for many people. However, you may want a seedbox if you share a lot of files, or want to get a good ratio on on a private BitTorrent tracker.
