Astericks next to some server names?

Question

Just DLed Viscosity and some of the server names have two astericks at the end (for example: Connect Iceland**). What does the astericks mean? I tried searching but couldn't find anything.

I've been trying to figure that out as well. Can't come up with any mention of them.

I just got the app and asked this same question to someone via the live chat on the website.

 

Apparently, the asterisks indicate locations that are optimized for Bittorrent.

 

Although I just started downloading some usually fast torrents and the speeds aren't as great as I'd hoped.

Is that official answers from live chat? It is actually kind of on the contrary, 'cause I'm have good bittorrent speeds on "Germany - Frankfurt" without asterisks, which you generally saying about, yes.

you guys using viscosity, right?

** are torrent optimised servers

its best to use those for optimal results

but that doesn't mean torrents won't work on other servers, just that those stared or in LITE with green icon, are optimised for p2p
