Anyone know any other programs like torrents that downloads faster?
1. "torrents" isn't a program, its a protocol for file sharing.
2. Usenet is faster.
Use the newest µTorrent, and make sure to cap your max upload to 80% of your....max upload
You have to pay for Usenet
usenet is better and more legal. you dont need to upload with usenet and its faster. its generally better. and usenet will never get shut down.
IRC/ftp are good.
Oye. What are they teaching you kids nowadays.
problem is, you have to pay for usenet and the prices are not appealing at all.
newest utorrent sucks
Torrents are only as fast as the amount of seeding. On public torrents people aren't going to bother seeding much, on private they do and you can get very high download speeds. It's all about what website (tracker) you use.
Torrents are free while usenet is not. I guess if you aren't a member of any good private torrent websites it's worth paying for usenet..otherwise save your $$$.
Using usenet for the purposes everyone does is just as illegal as torrents
Have a nice day.
irc i believe works exactly the same as private trackers in that you have to share back what you download, you can't just go to a server and download what you want, you have to trade files with other users before you get anything.
with private trackers you get max speed when you download from their server but you have to upload back and sometimes that can takes days to do so, you can download from a public tracker but it's gonna be super slow though lol and you don't seem to get stuff as fast as private trackers.
Maybe not to you, but I'm quite happy with my 100gb blocks for 19.99USD. 2mb down speed on anything I download.
ok then explain to me what irc is then? because the last time i looked it up that's exactly what you had to do before you got anything back, and it was invite only anyway.
Thing is, most ISPs already provide you with Usenet server access (unless you use AOL or MSN, in that case - poor you). http://www.usenettools.net/ISP.htm A lot of the time they just use another service so they won't have to bother with setting up a Usenet server. I have usenetserver.com for free so I'm pretty happy.
They prices for other services, though, I'd have to agree and say they're quite high. Compared to services like Megaupload and Rapidshare Usenet services are generally higher.
To topic starter: this might seem like a dumb question, but have you tried forwarding your ports yet? Most common noob mistake I'd have to say.
Wow! Thats sounds sweet. Wheres that?
Sharing is caring
Oh cool my ISP is on that list of usenet servers. cheers iritegood
problem is, my isp virgin media do provide a news groups but it's absoutely crap, you can't get the good stuff unless you pay
I don't know about that 100gb service, but I use giganews, 25 for unlimited download with 200 day retention, thats almost 7 months of things people uploaded, and if you are like me, I downloaded at least 70gb in 12 days of having giganews so far... so 100gb is hardly anything.
Yes, all the people who have AIDS were cared fro y their lovers at the time.
Anyways, I just use torrent sites, and hope they have alot of seeders...pretty easy on my end.
And most Usenet sites have some sort of referral program. Whenever someone signs up using my referral link on Usenet-News, I get their first purchase added to my quota. So if you buy a 100gb block, I get the same amount added to my account.
Usenet is more legal. People don't get in trouble for downloading pirated materials, just uploading. See: Whatever the hell her name was that got sued for uploading recently
