    How many Mb's/Gb's can you download in a day with either account

    Buy a newsgroup account. You can find way more stuff on it and you can download as much as you like.

    I suggest buying a Rapidshare premium account simply because free Megaupload already kicks ass and getting premium MU is just a waste.

    Erm, I've always used Rapidshare and it seems more people use it for uploading than Megaupload.

    I'd go with Rapidshare, personally.

    Yep, and their download speed is terrific. And they have practically no download limit. Why bother getting premium when they pamper so much to free users?

    Yes Rapidshare, more people seem to upload to that then Megaupload.
    Or at least at the forums I go to.

    He didn't ask for a alternative (usenet) he just asked which premium account was better.

    I would say rapidshare seeing more people upload there than megaupload.

    Just read their sites it tells you the limits and all of the other specifications.

    I just take advantage of Megaupload's Happy Hour every night that I need it (Every night between 9pm-3am EST).

    i prefer rapidshare, been a user for a while. rapidshare now allows 10gigs/day and it rolls over until you accumulate 50 gig max. pretty good. anyway if you're in the market for an account we could probably split it half half i wouldnt use more than 10 gig a week i just hate waiting for torrents to get a good seed:leech ratio. also, to those talking about usenet, it is good theres no doubt about it but unless you get free subscription (i dont) its more expensive then RS, MU etc etc...

    Rapidshare ftw, erm... no, make that wtf. My speed for Rapdishare, even with Premium is 3kb/s, and I was trying to download 2GB worth of file, and it got cut off right away, bastards.

    I say, however, get Rapidshare, lotsa people was mystified by it and it's a tradition to upload everythng to Rapidshare, especially popular stuffs

    I'd go with megaupload since rapidshare is dreadfully slow.

    anyone getting bad speeds on rapidshare download and use a download manager with your premium account. connect to it 5 times and you will max out your connection no worries. i get my full download speed (150k/s) from it from 5 connections easily.

    sometimes you just get a slow server, so hammering it can work [​IMG]

    megaupload is good enough without a premium.
    but you will need one for rapidshare...
