    I am downloading a file and I have to wait 90 seconds to download it. That is a long ass time and I don't remember it being that long. Also the download speed is now cut in half. In the beginning rapidshare was the best. I had a membership and I had no complaints. Then membership was over and a couple months later I renewed it now this time they limited everything only 10 gb which for me I can easily suck up 7-8gb in a day. Well this is a rant and a question take it or leave it. Man this download is ssslllllooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwww

    RapidShare is will be phased out of mainstream online in the next 3 years.

    There will be free services, and are already, that will offer the same thing as there premium but obviously for free.

    Yup I kinda agree that rapidshare is getting worse and worse, every few months they change something to make it worse.

    I have been using rapidshare since it was .de and got confused as hell when .com popped up and everyone started to use that.

    I was plenty happy with how it was now the limits are less, can only be used from a set number of IPs and the rules for uploading have got more restrictive for free users which is crazy, this is how they got people on it in the first place.

    I don't think there is currently a free host out there that can match RS for me anyway. None are as quick which is what it comes down to for me, with RS premium I can max out my connection which is more than any other file host has been able to even premium ones.

    For speed reasons Im sticking with RS for now as I don't use 5Gb a day anyway but it still sucks, I hate it when services get worse instead of better, like broadband in the UK (getting worse year on year).

    @heiny I guess the same as why people post here and any other forums, Reputation.
    Have you been to a warez forum?

    I have been using megashares and membership for that is so worth it by 10 fold.
    Rapidshare better step it up.
