Forum buddy tested it out: a 100MB file took nearly AN HOUR to download.
Note, this only applies to free users - premium RapidPro users supposedly have high download speeds. Gee, how convenient.
Smart on Rapidshare - as one of the few "major" filehosters left, they're taking advantage of the situation. Nonetheless, pretty crappy for normal free users.
Hopefully a decision about whether filehosts will be added to Phun will be made at the end of the month. Between Hotfile's shady filehosting policies, MediaFire supposedly under new government scrutiny, and this newest ploy by Rapidshare, not many decent filehost options here at Phun.
