Yes*. Signing in at BitComet user interface may accelerate your download speed. With the same number of BT connections, signing in, will increase the Long-Time seeds number you can connect to. The higher the ranking of the CometID, the more Long-Time seeds that can be connected, therefore, the higher download speed you may get. (See more in the following chart)
