Nah, it's just an oc3 connection with default settings. I think I'm limited by the speed of my slow laptop hard drive, if I had a quicker drive I could easily double that.

It's pretty expensive though, I have 25GB limit, and then 3.50$/gb overage up to 50gb, and then 3$/gb over that until 100GB, and so on. It adds up quick.

supertorrents

It's definitely not the location, it's the 1200$/month internet connection.

Does downloading torrents from a machine hosted at a data center count?

would anyone like an invite to a private torrent tracker called funfile.org?

FYI private trackers require you to share/maintain a share ratio of 1:1. Meaning you d/l 1gb you must share/upload 1 gb.

If you aren't going to share/ leave your computer on and share. Don't ask for the invite you'll be banned in a few weeks.

im not sure, im not big on the private torrent scene.

It's great for New Movies and TV shows. NOt much else, about 55k users. I've been getting alot better speeds compared to public trackers, not sure how it compares to others.

BitmeTV is the win for TV shows, it's insane any show in there within 20 minutes of it ending, and you download at like 400k+ every time. There is also a ton of seeders for older/rare shit too...

The only problem is that there are *SO* many seeders that it's almost impossible to get your ratio up. Like I download something, say 350 mb show and even if I leave it for a week I uploaded like 10 MB. There are just simply so many seeders that no one downloads off you, and I have to keep "donating" to get my ratio up, so now I use it for just rare shit or things I'm lazy to wait for and want to get an episode in 10 minutes

The only real way to get your ratio up is get season packs and seed them for like over 6 months, then maybe people will download off you because there won't be as many seeders for it. Still a bitch though.
