    Do a speedtest for me. It's probably the fault of your internet provider, in which case it's your fault for not doing proper research before calling foul on the site. By extension your money is forfeit. At least that's how I see it.

    That's really noble of you dude. If you needed the money, I think you should have thought about that before you spent it on the monthly membership. How long ago did you buy it, and have you been using their service since you've complained?

    Surely if you needed the money you wouldn't have wasted it on a month's download subscription.

    Consider it an educational experience on how not to waste your money.

    B.wait for them with the answer.
    C. sent them so many F-ing support tickets that they can there will be no more room to sent any to them from other users!!


    the only reason i want the money back is so i can go to a different site. if i don't get something from these idiots Tuesday my lie trick will work!!

    I don't even trust these actually. My brother wasted his $50 dollar pre-paid visa card, just to get his mods downloaded faster for minecraft. Guess what? You know.
    This happened since his birthday (which was Oct.19), and we tried contacting them (which was only available through email), and NO reply.
    Freaking frauds, it's better to do slow downloads anyway.

    If you're pirating, you should be more patient :teach:

    Besides, aren't most of those "30 day trials" like under $20? Why is it so bad?

    "god damn greedy douchbags..."

    Are you using this for piracy? You want something cheaper than it would cost to purchase it legally and they are the greedy ones?

    Suck it up and look into UseNet.

    Since you haven't answered these yet:
    1. How slow is slow?
    2. What is your maximum download speed? (run a few tests at www.speedtest.net to find out)

    This things happens mostly to any free filehost provider
    the speed is really depends on your location and "server" location

    due the large of userbase servers are spread in many datacenter
    in this case probably the file you want to download is located far out from your location.

    it happens to me when I still subscribing with Megaupload before it was dead.
    they had 3 location for their host servers, EU based, US based and HK based.
    How do I know it? it's quite easy just track the ip and you'll get the location.
    but since my speed isn't that great either usually anything beyond 512KB/s is fast for me.

    so what you can do?
    waiting for Support? 4 years I subscribing, they only response twice.

    so yeah, unless you spent like $100/month, just deal with it.
