It’s been a long while since I’ve posted updates here, but my next project will be reviewing LinkSnappy’s services. I’ve taken the opportunity to renew my account there and ran a few tests over the past week and have been pleased with the results. So, I figure it’s about time to take a closer look at the service and give it an updated review for 2017.
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 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.
