TorrentFreak reports the BitTorrent network is used by 100 million monthly users. The network has 20 million active daily users from over 220 countries, and over 400,000 new clients are downloaded every day.
uTorrent for Windows saw its first public release in September 2005 and soon became the most widely used BitTorrent application. The potential of the minimalistic client was soon picked up by BitTorrent Inc. who bought it in December 2006.
In the years that followed the original BitTorrent mainline client was gradually transformed into a rebranded version of uTorrent, and today BitTorrent Inc. announced that both clients combined now have more than 100 million active users a month. Users literally come from all over the world, with 20 million active daily users from over 220 countries.
