1. Is it common for there to be a huge disparity between the upload/download bandwidth allowed by ISPs?
I've been testing my speeds (DSLreports) and they are typically 3000-5000 Kb/sec down and ONLY ~240Kb/sec up.
This is a cable connection and is the 'Premium' package. It's the best available in my area.
2. Is there some way around the upload throttling besides buying an expensive (read that as=unaffordable) commercial business account?
How do all these MFers posting these crazy Mbit upload/download speeds get that kind of bandwidth?
Does Europe/Asia? have equal up/down speeds available? Is this all country dependent or generally the same globally?
3. How the f*ck are members wanting to join a private tracker supposed to maintain some of the high ratios I've seen posted/talked about?
I mean if a movie is typically 4+ Gigs, it could take me a week? or month?!!? to upload it back AND what if there weren't many peers/downloaders wanting to get the movie from me?
I don't want a dozen invites/memberships just one or two? GOOD ones that I can keep permanently. I wouldn't call myself a 'downloading whore', maybe just an occasional 'junkie' that needs a fix a couple times a month. Does any of this make any difference?
