You can email your mp3 file:http://www.dbpoweramp.com/email.htm
If you are running Windows 7 then open 'Resource Monitor' and look on the network tab, this can show actual network bandwidth graphs, if you can post a screen shot to show the bouncing at 50%
It seems like uploads are throttled at 4Mbit/sec 'cause my client never exceeds this speed. It's a little bit sad 'cause I can upload at almost 15 times this limitation.
So...500GB=511999MB at 4MB/Sec=about 128,000 sec=36 hours to upload....pretty costly for time and $$ from ISP.Easier to save to hard drive and put at work in cabinet?Until people get upload speeds=download speeds for reasonable cost I am not sure the value of cloud storage for the average user at present.Nice idea, but economies of scale are not there yet...of course early adopters are willing to PAY. I could see it being useful for me if I had fiber optic both ways from my house to cloud server, but this is not a reality yet.
I have the feeling that most people who pay for broadband (not mobile) do not pay based on usage, so there are no extra payments above existing.
And let's not forget that as spoon's database grows, an increasing percentage of the files will not actually need to be uploaded, lowering the bandwidth requirements.
EDIT: Hey, I have an idea! The client could calculate a number, the higher the larger quantity of your collection is deduplicateable and the more the data is related to other users. It would be the ultimate measure for the peculiarity of your own taste: 1 = totally bizarre, 100 = top of the pops
Caps are common in Germany too.I think it would be very desireable not only to be albe to limit bandwith in % but also to have an option to limit bandwidth by mb/day and also by time (e.g. only allow upload at night)
You calculations are really off the mark.500GB = 500 000MB500 000 * 8 / 4 / 3600 / 24 = 11 days 14 hours.
