This really isn’t relevant to half of the visitors to this site, but it affects US residents and this site is an outlet for my opinions, so I’m sharing it here.
There are a huge number of factors at play when it comes to determining just how fast, or how slow, a particular file will download. It seems that a lot of people think that when they download a file, it should always download as fast as their internet service provider (ISP) will allow. Which, maybe this is the ideal situation for the end internet user, but this is hardly what happens in the real world. Not only are there technical and practical limits to things, problems may occur at any point of transmission or receiving data. Problems you may not be aware of that, and in many cases, problems that are completely out of your control.
I’ve been away for a while and generally focused on other things for the past couple of years. Now that I’m trying to get back into the swing of things, it’s time for some updates, and some updated reviews and ideally updated video tests. Truth be told, the only multihoster I’ve used in maybe the past 8 months is Linksnappy, which it’s only been the torrent-download tool save a few random files, which is as fantastic as always, but it’s much overdue to see the state of other multihoster services I write about on here as well.
I’ve been working on a project the past couple of weeks, and it’s about ready to open its doors for a private beta of sorts. 10 readers here will have the ability to access the service without cost with a limited lifetime membership.
This morning I was going to do a test of Putdrive and their cloud-based download tool. It’s been a while since I reviewed / tested it and had a few minutes to at least record the video… well… that didn’t go as planned. So, that attempt morphed into a comparison test and overview of the differences between Putdrive’s torrent downloader and the one available with a Linksnappy account.
I’ve decided to start a new series here: multihoster speed tests. It’ll be an occasional and random thing for now, but it’ll give you the opportunity to see which multihoster services are working with which filehosters, though on an admittedly limited scale.
