Not for me. Even when downloading say 4-5 files I'm rarely getting above 300KB/s..roughly 60-70KB/s per file.


I think the worse I get is 300KB/s per single link, just tried one download there.

Same, on UPC. Definitely something going on at hotfile's end. Reading around various forums and people are starting to complain about slow speeds the last day or so, people actually getting a faster speed as a free user.

300kbps?? that's fierce bad for a premium service. i use Megaupload free and it's mostly >1MB speeds i get from it (granted i use college bb) but on my o2 modem, i can get up to 600kbps with it.

what type of speeds should ye be getting with hotfile premium?

I put it download to the fallout of rs changing their terms and people going to hotfile. But that cant be the case now, seems hotfiles servers cant take the load.

Just seeing the edit now, lovely free users are getting better speeds :@

On a premium I hit 7mb on one download, im terrible a broadband speed numbers, so no doubt I put up the wrong speed measurement.

#23

Awful speed 16kbps when Normally I get over 2000

No difference between free and premium for me.

Was going to email them and seen this

"My download speed is very slow
When you download from our site, please be sure you don't make other downloads (for example from torrent sites, other downloads and etc). If you make multiple downloads from other sites/places all your download speed is shared between each download and this will cause you slow download from us.

Be sure also that you're logged and then to start download, because free users (or not logged) got capped download speed.

If you download through browser please notice your download speed could be limited due to browser settings. For high speed download it is always better to use any Download Manager program. For example:

http://freedownloadmanager.org

We don't limit download speed for our Premium users and if you download speed is slow this could be also your ISP issue.

If you still have slow download speed - please send us link you try to download and get slow download speed. We will check it asap.

For testing your download speed from our servers, please download this file and report us what speed you get.

Also check your internet download speed here and report us what numbers you get:

few of us over there experiencing HF and UPC issues, im getting 24KB/s on HF premium.

i rang upc and they guaranteed they aint blocking or limiting and sites, they reckon the backlash would be too big

Ive emailed hotfile and told em what speeds I was getting, that other sites used the full speed of my connection. I also said I hope this is sorted soon as its not the full speed of my ISP, which I told I would get with a premium account when I bought one.

True, I cant see a ISP blocking a hosting site(unless they are eircom ),a site used so much would cause uproar if they even tried to cap/block it.

pointing the finger towards upc, im guessing everyone here is upc??
