    Unless you pay for a subscription it's HIGHLY limited by the service providers themselves.

    Hope this helps!

    Oops I meant i'm getting half my download speeds than usually on rapidshare.

    I get my max speed from rapidshare.com all the time. Are you using a downloader manager such as FlashGet, Orbit or jDownloader?

    Depends. Even without premium I clock 250 which is about as high as I go on anything with a 2 mb line. I noticed occasionally I`d get same thing as you happening and it seemed to be time specific. Around evening 6-9 pm. This I think is due to ISP`s capping bandwith to its customers. Have you been downloading or uploading alot through out the day?

    I have to wait for my brother to come back he thought he already had a download manager installed and just tried installing it and it didn't work. I get 285 with a dm, and 250 without, right now im getting 115-120.

    I experience the same thing mate and was wondering if there was a way to get a constant speed.
    Really? Well i've downloaded about 1 gbs worth since 2 isn't that a bit slow???

    You need to be logged into rapidshare with internet explorer for FlashGet/Orbit to work

    There's better ones out there isn't there?

    My bet is its the ISP and ur bandwith allocation at specific times. But try the download manager and see if that helps. A premium Rapid account doesnt change much regarding speeds its just the waiting periods inbetween. Non-pro = 100mbs every 15 minutes which is alot better than the hour inbetweens RS used to do. I dont know why people continue to use RS anyway! With upload sites such as Megaupload and filefactory. RS is pi$$ poor mate but I know you cant control that when its the only place hosting the file you want. Goodluck anyway and keep us posted.
