Tired of downloading torrents at low speed? Is your ISP blocking the torrents, or are you getting slow download speeds because you’re using a VPN? I’ve got a solution for you! Of course, I am not promoting Piracy with any means, but let’s get you started. In this tutorial, you are going to use Google Collab to download torrents directly into your Google Drive. Sounds interesting, right? Keep in mind though that your Google Drive only allows you to have 15GB of free space. So when you download torrents directly into your Google Drive, make sure they are no bigger than 15GB. Otherwise use an alternative cloud drive like Mega.nz, where they give you up to 50GB of free space, and extra GB perks when completing various small tasks like adding a valid phone number etc.
