If I add more trackers to my trackers tab in uTorrent will it speed up my download?

Trackers assist in allowing peers to connect to each other. By adding more trackers, you should have more options for peers to connect to. Therefore, there is a good chance that adding more trackers will improve download speeds.

Note: You can't just add trackers. You have to make sure that that tracker also has that same torrent. –  Nifle May 27 '11 at 10:55
    
@Nifle: what happens if I had a tracker to a torrent, and that tracker does not have that torrent? –  JNat Jan 10 '13 at 15:27
    
@JNat - Nothing at all probably. May depend on the torrent client you use, but I doubt anything at all will happen. –  Nifle Jan 10 '13 at 18:12
    
@Nifle: I was just making sure. Thank you! –  JNat Jan 10 '13 at 19:48
