Where does Rapidshare buy its server space with unlimited download speed?

Bhupender aka ukohara September 3, 2010

There are servers who allow to download files in unlimited speed, for example 2-3 mbps. Some file sharing sites like Rapidshare buy their unlimited bandwidth speed and let other users use it for a memebership fee. Can someone provide a list of such websites?

    Hey ukohara,

    I am not 100% sure but my best guess would be that Rapidshare buys storage and bandwidth from CDN networks like MaxCDN or networks like Amazon S3.

    That would be the only way for them to be able to offer high download speeds and nearly unlimited bandwidth for moderate prices. For instance, on MaxCDN it's possible to buy 1 TB for 99$ (for larger purchases they often provide discounts up to 50%). For large customer like Rapidshare the price can be considerably lower.
