Default What speeds do you get for free-DLs?

What are the best "alternative/second hosts"?

Speeds for free downloads can be dramatically different. I free download regularly from several hosts and get the following speeds/wait-times - at the time of posting. Listed in order of speed:

zippyshare - up to 1,1 mbs / no wait time / no wait between DLs
putlocker - as above
netkups - as above
load.to - up to 800 kbs / 10 sec wait time / no wait between DLs
DF - up to 150 kbs / 60 sec wait time / at least 1 hour wait between DLs
FF - as above
netload.in - as above
HF - up to 160 kbs / 15 sec wait-time / 30 minutes between DLs
share-online - up to 120 kbs / 30-60 sec wait-time / at least 1 hour wait between DLs
lumfile - up to 60 bps / 60 sec wait time / at least 1 hour between DLs
RG - as above
uploaded.net - up to 50 bps / 60 sec wait time / often several hours between DLs

What speeds do you get?

I have cable 10/3 mbs

DL speed is never close to specification, even if I only want freeware Bambi-movies. UL speed isn't close either

I've had 2 mb/s from Rapidshare , I have a 30 Mb connection which on test really seems to deliver the claimed speeds.

I've seen this type of experiment done on another forum and whats all too apparent is its quite useful but only if people are very specific with stuff like

1.The type of files your likely to be uploading / downloading
2. Your actual geographical location - as filehosts have a bad habit of not performing well everywhere
3.Your ISP - purely for others in the same area to get some useful intel

Overall speeds and access varies wildly all across the world and can depend as much on what day what hour as anything else

Some countries have phenomenal infrastructure while others lag years behind



On an 8mb cable line in Australia via ISP - telstra


Rapidshare 100kb-500KB

I wouldnt touch either of these 2 below for anything thats likely to receive a DMCA notice
Anecdotal comments say 2 notices = closed account

Hot files 200-300kb - has a perplexing interface for uploaders when it comes to codes
Bitshare 200-300kb - restricts guests to 500Mb & registered users 1Gb a day - possibly per user account or in total - the restrictions as I knew them were per account you were downloading from

Mediafire 100-200kb - said to have a similar stance on dmca notices to the above 2
has an authorisation code which pops up every now and then as we speak
The reason for it - to stop jdownloader - currently they havent broken it
- manual downloading in other words - multi part files = maximum 10-15 downloads a week

Depositfiles 100-200KB - 1mb downloaded = 1/2 minute wait till next download
inactive files are good for 90 days before you need to worry about re-upping
has a captcha for registered users to fill in simply to log in - bizarre - downloaded some large files recently 1GB -1.5gb - 150kb all the way no problems.

Currently download a 6 part (5 x 250mb 1 x 189mb - 1.4 gb file from DF

download speed 150kb - 40 minute wait between posts

I'm yet to have any of my files uploaded to DF( since 7/2012) removed for inactivity or DMCA but thats most likely down to the content being not of interest to the copyright owners presumably.

filefactory - 50KB -180kb - waiting times vary depending on volume of traffic - seems very steady

Freakshare - 200b-300kb


When ever I see the multi-hosts mirror creator or embedupload
you know your going to at least have some sort of choice speed wise
though links are sometimes all dead - longevity is possibly an issue



Looking around at whose using what I'd give 1filchier french filehost a try
only thing is like its french counterpart packupload (maximum 400mb file) it does seem to have outages at busy times like weekends.

Downloaded a 672 mb file this morning with no issues no captcha 200/300kb
Went and tried another file late afternoon - cant connect to host


I've come to the conclusion that slow and steady wins the day in this climate
so the highest download speed wont always mean the best host to use

Infact uploading speed will more than likely be less if the download speeds are excellent
Mediafire was always weighted that way

You're right, but that's the point of the thread - to find out who gets what

1st, what little I KNOW as infrequent DL, then the other stuff.

East coast usa, broadband, 2/24 late EST, in this range [124. 140.] So agrees w/ buttsie also. This much we know for the "civilized" world.

It is not speculation to say host servers are the parameter. I was almost intimidated by warning of x0x0 minutes, etc. if I did not buy "Gold." What I do see is the wait time for next one as function of what the slow time was supposed to be. For short clips not too bad. Selling gold is their business.

IF host servers are the parameter, & IF up-loaders give a hoot. then

I see a grid of par times for a few popular regions that UL's could consult.
Asterisks, etc. as required. You can't cover Antartica & Equitorial Guinea, etc..

Who am I to intrude in debate between sages? Bad habit of mine.

Anyway, good to see something from DL POV, not common.

I'm not knocking the venture Palo just saying the more detail people put into their comments the more useful their likely to be.

As a few of the high volume uploaders have said in filehost threads over the years all the
attention is paid to the download speed,waiting times & countdowns.

YET little thought is given towards

The uploading side,retention of files because their not the ones uploading,re-upping or moving to a new host when the account is closed or files deleted enmass.

More thought needs to be given to using a balanced host than the quickest imho

Decent speed in uploading / downloading & retention of files - inactivity test


If there one lesson many free users could learn its from those uploading to earn
Their mostly premium members so they can have access to everything at premium speeds.

Kind of sums up this age of sharing - if you aint prepared to pay be prepared to wait
If you not prepared to wait go and have a cold shower or put on your sherlock holmes outfit and start searching for alternatives



ultramegabit - Currently downloading 464mb file 150kb 52minutes to go

Just registered a free user account there - seems to have a limit of 150GB for uploads
download hovering around 150kb - its very depositfiles like - very steady
- but doesnt appear to have a premium paying level unless I'm blind


bitshare 373mb file 270kb after slow start around 100kb after 90 second countdown

I'm in eastern Canada and I have a 50/30 megabit/sec fibre op connection (@ 6 megabytes down, 3.5 up)

Of the filehosts Palo mentions as well as a few others, here's what I note:

Putlocker - 1+ megabytes/sec, no wait time, simultaneous downloads no capcha
Depositfiles - 150 kb/sec, 60 sec wait, 30-45 minutes between downloads Capcha code req'd
Netload - @ 20 kb/s, capcha req'd, I avoid it
Rapidgator - 150 kb/sec, about 15 minute wait, capchar req'd can only download 3 files day regardless os size
FileFactory - 150 kb/sec 15-30 min wait between DL's
Fly Files (not permitted here) - usually 20 kb/sec. sometimes faster, no capcha, usually no wait time
Uploaded.net - 50 kb/sec, capcha req'd, 3 hours between DL's
Mediafire - up to 500 kb/sec, no wait between DL's, occasionally requires a capcha
Hotfile - 15 sec wait, no capcha, 30 min between DL's, 250 kb/s steady, occadionally up to 350 kb/s


I much prefer the 'no capcha' hosts as I can just queue those up in Jdownloader and leave them till they're done.

Blow me down with a feather duster finally rapidgator works even with no script on

- though i had to allow the download page once & captcha page twice
In the past that would have prompted a 15 minute wait.

RG 153mb file 80-120kb
