No Blocked Ports or Traffic Shapping
Unlimited Downloading
100GB of Online Storage
Up to 5Mbps Download and 800Kbps Upload

But its only 5 or 6 mbs max... I like my 10 right now
Did you even bother looking? I mean I know everyone wants everything for free these days, but really there are something things worth paying for.

And yes Astranet is a usenet/newsgroup provider.

Here is a google search for NZB crawlers:
http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=...meta=&aq=f&oq=

Check them out and type in what you're looking for. See if your Russian stuff is available.

DSL sucks balls.... Teksavvy has great support but that's about it. I was running two DSL lines bonded when I was with them... Paying $80+ a month, for what? For slower speeds then I get with Rogers.

So now I pay $55 for 10mb/s + my $15 a month for newsgroup access and I'm still cheaper and faster then two DSL lines.

thats the thing those newsgroups are great for everything BUT the Russian movies and episodes that im watching...

The download speed is awesome, Its just that as i said I cannot share with decent speed and thats a big problem. I'd pay not to share lol but there's no such thing.

Oh well i'll figure something out.

Teksavvy said that they dont cap upload but im still concerned with their service and slower internet. I've been with rogers for 10 years and I enjoy their service... Too bad shaw provider is not available in Toronto they have great prices for their services.

Some private trackers give you credits for donating. Those credits can then be used to buy upload GBs to add to your share ratio.

Not all are the same, but they usually have something along those lines.

All private trackers i know of accepts donations in someway, and they usually give you incentives if you do donate.

not so much. the channels have gotten quite specific. movies, mp3, software...mostly all on different channels. still the best by faaaar...but rarely used and obviously not having to worry about any of the bs encountered using torrents is a bonus. torrents should be a last resort.

ya i dont even bother with uploading any more.. my private tracker allows me to "donate" money and in exchange you get upload credit. they got events going on every month for donations.. typically for 20$ ill get 500 gb upload credit and be put into a draw to win a prize of some sort.

500 gb usually lasts me a few months now since I prety much stopped downloading games.
