A joke right ? Ave 50kbs download (30hrs to go)
I hope I only have to download this once....

This is from Fileplanet

Fileplanet unfortunately kind of shafts non-paying users on the speed end of things. You can try the torrent downloader, but bittorrent can also be unpredictable speed-wise (also you would have to start over).

As of a couple hours ago I was helping a friend get the torrent up and going because of the same issue for him with FP.

There was a few hundred seeds and nearly 10k peers at that point. Last I talked to him he was running 150-300k or so.

With those many clients up, you should in theory max your download speed if you throttle your upload appropriately. Most unbalanced home .net connections don't handle multiple traffic sources well, you can thank your ISP for that...its not just the bandwidth of your upstream.

Fileplanet seems to shaft paying customers as well.
Made a 1 month subscrip just to get this thing faster.
Now I'm getting about 100k on a 3Mb line,

I started downloading via FilePlanet free subscription about 7:30pm-EST last night, and was done by 2:00am-EST.

Might depend which server you hit. I'm in Ohio, and I used their East Coast free(queued) server.

I've been downloading for most of the night - when I wake up it's at 40.00 KB estimated another 7 hours to finish. WTF? Before I went to sleep it was at 400.00 KB (midnight GMT time). :eek:

(Living in UK so using the international one annoyingly. Would have thought they would seperate it further.)

*EDIT: Make that 20.00 KB at times making the estimated time to about 5/6 PM my time - so will have taken me 18 hours to download. Jesus even my WoW Patchs didn't that long. How bad is it going to be on patch days?!*

I switched to the torrent and after an hour it was streaming through at arounf 300kb/s with 1000's of seeds and estimating 5 hrs.

I have canceled the File Planet download, will not try them again...

I've been a fileplanet subscriber for a while and it really doesn't mean what it used to. Originally I would get 500-800k/s from them which isn't great for a 20meg line but its not terrible.

In the last 6 months however I've yet to get a better than 250k/s rate and more often than not including the whole 8gb ST download it failed to get over 170k/s and averaged something like 70-80k/s

Needless to say I don't think I will be renewing my subscription.

any1 think that with a few thousand ppl trying to download the same files there might be a small bottleneck?

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 10:57 PM.
