A while ago I added a reply to the seedboxes.cc thread and the few minutes later it was removed. Below you can find an original reply:
Yesteday I bought an account from seedboxes.cc. After adding a few torrents it turned out that I wasn't able to download faster than 30MB/s, and one file from tl downloaded only with 5MB/s and it had more than 500 seeds. So I added something from ipt and it turned out that somebody with the IP which I share has added this file too so I had only 2 peers. Later I also tried some other free torrents but the situation remained the same. So the account cannot be used on ipt or tl, which are the trackers used most frequently by me, because I share an IP which is used intensively by someone else. What is more they have only 5 IPs for a server with 24 HDDs. I also decided to check whether the server is not overloaded and what happened? I discovered that the server doesn't have 10Gbps only 2x1Gbps and more than 1700Mbps were used. So I have only 200Mbps available and not the 10 Gbps advertised. I asked why it is so and after 18 hours I r4eceived the following reply:
Only 2 HDDs are not used so 22 are functioning and you want to add 12 extra HDDs to this server!The servers are equipped with 10gbit ethernet cards, and our backbone is over 50gbit. However this is a feature for the future, when we will add more hard disks on our servers to add more users on them. Currently we have not put on our servers so many people in order to justify the use of the 10gbit cards, routers and optics (which are very expensive and currently used only for our backbone core routers and switches. Each of our servers almost never goes above 1gbps average usage, so for now 2x1gbps is more than enough to justify our needs, and keep the cost low in order for us to order more servers and keep the subscriptions monthly, instead of requiring a 3 month prepayment.
Once we put more users on our servers by the end of the year, we will rollout on each of these server a switch to the 10gbit links. This however does not make any difference for you or for the future clients. You will always have the required bandwidth available for your needs. None of our servers has congestion on the network. Also a sata disk can never read/write more than 80-90Mbyte/sec, so this is your real speed limit and not the network itself. We are "forced" in a way to advertise what we advertise, since our competitors do the exact same thing (and in a worse way too). This however is a small an innocent "marketing trick", with no real impact to the service quality you acquire from us. Our network backbone however, where all our servers are connected, is multi 10gigabit and shared among all the servers
There is no 10Gbps NIC on this server. Anyone can check it so I don't understand why you keep on lying to customers.
seedboxes it's high time you changed your offer and give the real parametres, false advertising is just making fools of people.
Seems that my msg was troublesome so they have removed the whole thread, thats why I'm opening this thread. Everybody can see the truth.
