I need to download a ton of large files from rapidshare. My internet connection is too slow. Can anyone recommended a good internet cafe in Auckland for this?

Making an assumption here... but you will probably find that downloading illegal files will be against their terms of service. Aswell as some of them will block sites such as rapdidshare.

Dont you know anyone with a faster connection in your area that could do it for you if you throw them a few $$ to cover the data use ?

If you go to an internet cafe called NetSquared on Queen Street just down and oposite the road from sky city metro its $10 for 5 and a half hours. I'm not sure if your aloud to download but there's a folder on the desktop called "Customer Files and Movies" running of a NAS server somewhere it the building that has around 1.4TB of new movies,Music,TV shows.. I don't understand how its legal

Any comments made are my personal views and does not represent those of my employer

It won't be legal and they're likely to get fined when found out.
