Rapidshare upload speeds


[link to this post]
 
If any non infinity fttc users could upload a file to rapidshare.com and post what speed you get I would really appreciate it, you will need to register a free account before being able to upload.

It would be really usefull because there are three Infinity users that I know of who are not getting good upload speeds to rapidshare.com, typically 70KB/s. Rapidshare insist they are not limiting upload throughput and BT are taking their time to tell use whether they are limiting the upload speed or not.

Results from other ISP's should show whether the problem is with BT or rapidshare.

I think BT are defiantly throttling it. Mine started out at 700k/sec, then watching bandwidth graph it jolts back down to 200k/sec and fluctuates around that.

Download the RSM Free tool and use that to upload several files at the same time, i think only a free account is needed to use the RSM or use Filepost instead, open a free account with them and you can upload via ftp instead using filezilla or other ftp client

Thanks.

Anyone on another ISP willing to try? I can create an account for you and PM the login details if that would help.

Presuming I need to upload multiple files all the same time, that only allows me to fill the bandwidth while there are 3-4 uploads running, it doesn't mean faster uploads as the largest file will always take an age.

Single file upload speed is poor and it is only poor on rapidshare, I can get max upload speed to other filehosts and servers.

Hi,

I am seeing a contant 135KB/Sec uploading from Zen. Speedtest show my upload to be around the 10Mb maximum. Saying that if I FTP the file up (to Zen / Heart Internet) it's actually slower.

Not had the service long so more investiagtion required.

Mark.

Hi Mark, hmm so slow on Zen too. That points to the problem being with rapidshare.

Can anyone else on another ISP confirm slow speeds?

Hi,

For what its worth, I've just re-run the tests on my office PC (same location) and see 134KB/Sec to rapidshare with a free account.

Upload to Heart Internet via FTP (single file) hovers between 1MB & 1.1MB/sec

Looks like it may indeed be a restriction at Rapidsahre.

Regards,

Mark.

Re: Rapidshare upload speeds


[re: Anonymous] [link to this post]
 
I've been using rapidshare on and off for years. Early last year I got 1MB/s via their web page. When I started using RS again in january uploads via their web page ran at 300KB/s via the website and 600KB/s via the RSManager. Recently that has dropped to 70KB/s on their website and 300KB/s using the RSManager.

I have always used a premium account and rapidshare insist they do not limit the upload.

Infinity and Zen users seem to get poor speeds, while Anonymous has posted better speeds on BE. So if rapidshare are limiting speed it is not applied to everyone.

I'd still like to see more tests from other ISP's, if you have a spare few minuites I'd appreciate it.

I wonder if it'd be worth pointing rapidshare support to this thread.

I dont get why people use rapidshare type sites unless its for copyrighted content.

Major isps give free webspace and even paid web space is dirt cheap, cheaper than rapidshare as well with no throttles, captchas etc.

Be /o2 don't and i don't think sky does, not sure about bt but i would say doubtful on inclusive web space, some of the resellers offer a small amount which is shared space with e-mails should you use the space for e-mails , But for making a local file available to a remote user without (remote session ) cyberlockers are a good solution , if not copyrighted then i would use Mediafire

Rapidshare gives me unlimited storage/bandwidth and doubles as an online backup site and a filesharing site. All for less than £5/PM.

My ISP does provide a small amount of online space, which isn't enough and the files can't be shared.

Webhosting is cheap yes, I actually have my own VPS, but your not allowed to store personal files, only those which are used for your website.

Pirate or not, rapidshare would be the ideal solution for me if the upload speed wasn't so pitiful.

Just tried mediafire, got 300KB/s on their site and 100KB/s using there windows App.

I can get full speed to sendspace so it can't be a setup issue on my side.

That personal file limitation would be unique to your VPS provider, as that is something I have never come across before.

Typically limitations just require it to be legal content.

£5 month is way above what you could get webspace for. I think you a victim of the rapidshare ripoff.

I am eg. hosting speedtouch firmware files and allowed kitz to link to it on her adsl forum site, I also have decided to host android firmwares after on xda developers (where they love using megaupload etc.) lost all their files when those sites started clamping down. I receieved many personal thanks from people as they no longer have to navigate pages asking them to pay to download free content, captchas etc. Just a simple direct download link.

[re: Croftie] [link to this post]
 
well I was advising you how to avoid the problem. Since the widespread use of rapidshare is copyright content then is logical isps will throttle it.

Also rapidshare are throttling free users downloads which suggests they have issues with capacity somewhere.

clearly my advise doesnt interest you so I wont say anything else now on this topic.

Hmm, OK, first, I already answered you. Second, where did I ask for advise on how to avoid the problem. I can't see why your getting huffy and defensive but whatever.

The purpose of this thread is to determine who is to blame for the slow speed, rapidshare or my ISP.

Anyway, slow speeds on BT and Zen (VDSL), full speed on BE (ADSL). If anyone on a different ISP to those can try I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks.

I'm not sure - years ago, when I used Easynews they had a tool to determine your routing and the ability to force a different routing if needed.

What does a traceroute to their upload server look like?

Yesterdays increased latency after the first few hops has cleared up, still slow upload speed though so probably not related.
