Then you download the torrent and watch it when that happens? Seemed like you were preemptively downloading a load of stuff for no reason other than to download stuff. Doesn't bother me, just seemed like a bit of a relic from the days before fast available internet.Except when your favourite streaming service no longer streams your favourite old show.
I download, but don't keep after I watched it. But sadly only have 4mbps ADSL , so it takes days to build up a good binch session of season 7 of Friends.Torrents are still available at a click. Just seemed strange that someone is downloading a load of series to store on a HDD when it's all online all the time. Hardly have any media that I keep anymore after watching it.
That thread is a circle jerk.Hey guys. I understand your scepticism 100%. Please feel free to check out the Afrihost Pure Fibre feedback thread where clients who are forum members are using the network and posting their experiences. https://mybroadband.co.za/forum/threads/afrihost-pure-fibre-feedback-thread.1037731/page-31
No, it's just a feedback thread. The fact that most feedback is positive doesn't make it a circle jerk. Plenty of people in the thread have various issues, from fibre network migration stuff to billing and promotions and whatever else. You have issue, you post, hopefully gets sorted. Not sure what else you expect from a feedback thread.That thread is a circle jerk.
At least the system eventually evens itself out that way.I do see a pattern here.....
Everytime an ISP launches a new product offering (and promises that go with it), in the beginning everything runs smooth and as promised. Until more and more people subscribe to the new product offering and then, eventually, the network gets congested and the service goes to ****.
In the meantime, another ISP launches a new product because they were losing subscribers. Then everyone jumps to this product and then congests this network.........and then the circle continues.
Some people just like hoarding.If everything's pretty much available at a click, why still hoard series on hdd's?
