This is just to tell you about my experience with BitCo.

I signed up with them when they had the uncapped service for home and had to sign a 2 year contract. I was happy for the fist 15 days then suddenly my access to some filesharing sites I use for work just stopped. after being on the phone with them for about 2 weeks they came back to me saying the sites was flagged as 'abusive' and access was blocked. so I switched to a different host and paid upfront for 2 years. 2 months in, they blocked it again... same reason, and they refused to refund me for the service I paid for and can't use because of them! After this I learned my lesson and only signed on to services on a month to month basis. I tried Filefactory which is basically the last one left last night and it was working. so I signed up today.. I got halfway in a file and my speed dropped again. now it will take me 4 days to download a 56mb file. After I phoned them (yet again) they told me to submit a ticket (yet again), but here's the kicker, I can't even access their website or ticket system on my connection... but according to them nothing is wrong.

Also they told me I am not allowed to download anything during the day, even when I limited my downloads to 3mbps of the supposed 10mbps (that I never even got close to). Now I'm stick in a 24month contract for something that is completely useless to me.

Here is a list of the sites/services they have blocked so far:
Rapidgator
Uploaded
Vola
Mega
Filefactory
hitfile
nitroflare
bigfile
faststore
hugefiles
upstore
keep2share
userscloud
upvast
rockfile
anafile
alfafile

.. and these are the ones I know of.

So if you are thinking of joining up with them, don't

You need a business account.

Sounds like you have a valid reason to break contract and send cancellation.

I'm curious why you need those sites for "work"? They are kinda dodgy. Why not use dropbox or even filegooi?
