Bandwidth Shortage -- Please Use Bittorrent

5 posts in this topic

Due to the high demand of FreeMeshX 2.0, my bandwidth usage on MediaFire has far exceeded its limits. Therefore, the automatic downloads through the downloader were temporarily suspended by MediaFire. To put things in perspective, I have used about 8.5 PB of bandwidth from MediaFire that past two years.

I have paid for more bandwidth, but I ask that only the automatic download scripts be used if Bittorrent is absolutely NOT an option!

Thanks!

Well, that didn't take long!

20 TB of bandwidth in one week gone. I have no choice but to suspend the automatic download scripts for now. For the time being, Bit Torrent is the only way to download the files.

I never saw any bandwidth usage like this before FMX 2.0, and had even built up a whole PB of surplus bandwidth. That has all disappeared now. The amount of traffic now is just insane, and with no revenue to support the costs, I will have to shift the burden onto Bit Torrent which was designed for exactly this type of thing.

Can you ask/post that torrent users set to  allow uploading?  Might help, currently I'm seeing 5 day download time

Currently, I'm seeing 21 uploading on the Global torrent with 24 downloading, so it's in relatively good health. Ideally, people should be uploading an equal amount that they download to ensure decent speeds.

Oh, ok!  Thanks.

I did notice afterwards that my uploads matched my download size.  I'm about 60% done...maybe I'm being throttled by my IP! lol.

My d/l speeds swing from 180K to 49 and back again.
