eMule is a client for file exchange on eDonkey2000 (ed2k) based networks. It allows you to connect not only to official eDoneky2000 clients, but also to any other clients using this protocol.
Some factors that affect the download speed:
firewall and router settings;
the duration of the session;
the number of file sources to be downloaded;
Availability of individual parts of the file for download;
the popularity of the download.
Incorrect settings in eMule (wrong limits, too many connections), low ID and short sessions have a negative impact on download speed. Very popular files (new releases) and files with a low number of sources or low distribution speed also cause the download level to decrease.
Currently, the popularity of file exchange via ed2k networks is declining, giving way to torrents. To work with torrent networks, you will need programs such as BitTorrent or MediaGet.
