Patster_NZ Posted November 29, 2010 Share Posted November 29, 2010 Hello, and greetings from New Zealand. I just subscribed for five bucks worth of VIP hi-speed, and have to say not over the moon about it. I started a 1.3Gb download which kicked off at about 32kbps and thought, yeah! The VIP should knock the spots off this! - WRONG! It actually made no difference to the download speed even with some 20+ connections. The annoying factor is that as soon as you activate the VIP option, the broadband is calculated and accordingly reduced straight away, and then you find that the speed is not improved at all! I also tried a download from our friends torrents.ru simultaneously, and the download speed kicked in at 175 kbps without touching the VIP option. Question: Is the VIP worth it when you add the cost of a large download to any additional ISP broadband extra charges for increased broadband usage? Best regards to all.
