After having there share of copyright woes, action against downloaders, imposing account limits and loosing users, Rapidshare is doing another effort to win back its lost audience by announcing that they have removed all restrictions which applied to its subscribers until now. The change also affects unregistered users, so basically there is no upload & download limit on Rapidshare, nor is the storage space and upload file size restricted.
Personally, I believe this change is not enough to catch up with some much better and cheaper services such as Zevera, which is a multi-host downloading service where you can benefit from multi-service premium downloads with just one account. A single account with all premium access to anything you want from any known FileHoster such as Rapidshare, Hotfile, Megaupload, Mediafire, Depositfiles, Netload, Filesonic, Fileserve etc. is now the choice of smart users.
As a pioneer in One Click File Hosting, RapidShare has often ventured into unknown territory, to find the best product for its customers. Now it's time to properly clean up the inventor's workshop, because everything that just sucks finally has to go. Immediately and permanently, RapidPro price include all services indefinitely. This means:
More storage space
As of now, automatic file deletion will no longer exist. With RapidPro, your files are saved until you delete them yourself!
From now on, it is absolutely unlimited. TrafficShare included. It’s that easy!
We have polished up our software! Uploads, as well as downloads, have been successfully carried out at 500 MBit/s per stream!
Politics call for the complete monitoring of all internet users. We protect you with automatic SSL-encryption.
Have fun with the new RapidShare: Finally, everything is easy again!
