    Well, you are circumventing the restrictions by launching multiple instances of the download at the same time. So you just proved me right.
    Try downloading a single file without an accelerator. From Rapidshare.

    Ya know, I kinda wish they wouldn't do this. I'd rather have them spend their time spreading decent broadband speeds to places that don't have any. Hell, there are still people with no broadband at all. Things like this just widen the gap.

    would love to get 1 gg connection but i guess before i get anything that good in mid / north Sweden it might take another 20 years.

    Paying for 30mbit down and 3mbit up atm and i get like:

    and i am not that far from my source either, like 300 - 400 meters or something.
    I'm a stranger, I'm a changer.
    And I'm danger... maybe...

    I'll be getting 100mbs download in 11 days, @ 90 a month. Fastest net possible, at my place.

    This is the highest I've seen in the several times I've used speedtest. Even at that speed it would take me a while to download a full game. If I could download a game in a couple of minutes or seconds instead of hours, I think that would be worth it.

    Hi guys!
    This is not the How fast is your Internet?-thread. Flex your e-muscles over there instead, please!

    Who wouldn't sign up for this?

    1gbps doesn't sound like a lot... but that's about 125MB/sec. For $70?

    That's like buying a brand new Mercedes for $1,000.

    True, though I would be quite happy with 400Mbps myself. lol

    Usually I find your upload is hit the worst if you're downloading something at the same time or anything like that.

    Yes, it's cheaper than my current internet+tv plan through Verizon and faster too if they truly do provide those speeds.
