O.K I know Telecom have been very up front about shaping but the fact remains that a lot of stuff is being shaped to an inch of its life.

So for what it's worth I reckon Big Time is Go Large with Service Pack 1 applied.     The main contents of the 'service pack' is Telecom telling us that shaping will make some protocols virtually useless unless they are run at 3.05 am.

Something like XP with SP1.   A little better but not much!

And the problem is?

There are plenty of people out there downloading 150GB+ of data per month. If you're getting this for the same price as a 20GB plan with no traffic shaping.

If you don't like shaping then change plans. If you want unlimited downloads then you just have to accept that you will have to accept a compromise in terms of speed.

Hey,

I'm sorry if this is a little bit off topic but I'm on Big-Time and rapidshare speeds appear to be going at 10KB/s at max and 24/7, I know the traffic is definitely managed but I can't seem to even get 20GB a month from this, and previously on Go-Large I used to be consistently getting ~250KB/s..

Is anyone else having any speed issues regarding rapidshare?

I just wanted to know what speeds on average people were getting these days, whether mine was abnormal and if I should contact TC about it.

I could not see any thread dealing with comparing Go Large with Big Time so that's why I started this one.

Rapidshare downloads at about 160KB/s for me. but seeing as no one is using the internet right now I am getting over 1MB/s right now.

If you are having issues with a premium account then contact telecom, if you are using free download then you can't complain as most of the limits are set by Rapidshare themselves.
