    Alright, rapidshare has done ALOT of things in cutting down their services. Such as making extremely complicated download codes and such, but recently on the new rapidshare, I am having trouble getting over 50kb/s. So many uploaders still use rapidshare, this is becoming a problem...

    This has been since some weeks now. They removed captchas and cut the Bandwith for normal free Users to 60kb/s.

    They wanna force us leechers to buy Premium Accounts...

    I'm currently downloading on Rapidshare now and have 100kb/s, not sure how long it will last though as I usually get around 60-70kb/s

    What blows my mind is why no one uses mediafire or at least megaupload

    Rapidshare servers are faster and easier to download (well for premium members anyway).

    Free users are supposedly limited to 62.5KBps, although it seems to limit me at 100 sometimes?

    because many already have rapidshare-premium accs and don't want to change?
