      Smile Free Seedbox trial (get to know the benefits of using a seedbox for your torrents)

      First off this is not a promotion for downloading illegal files, as there many, many legal torrents out there.

      Sorry I should of added this. This trial is only open to UK users.

      All gone for now I will do another trial next month.


      I am offering a free trail of a seedbox, so you can get to know what a seedbox is all about.


      For those of you that do not know what a seedbox is, basically it is a torrent client that is run on a server rather than your home computer.

      What are the benefits of a seedbox?

      1, Speed.

      Most seedboxes are on 100Mbit lines, which make them really fast. Unquestionably faster than your home Internet access - unless you live in Japan or Sweden, that is. You can sit back, relax and watch in amazement at how fast the torrents finish. Gigabyte files will be downloaded in minutes, practically without limitations. Of course, you’ll still be limited to the speed of your home connection when you want to transfer these files from the server to your computer.

      2, Uploading.

      With a seedbox, your ratio will be 1:1 within minutes, not days. 10:1 ratios are not uncommon within the first hour for popular torrents. No more do you have to seed the torrent for weeks. You’ll be free to delete seeding torrents, and replace them with other ones.

      3, No more throttling and bandwidth limiting for using torrent clients.

      With a seedbox you can bypass these limitations. Your seedbox traffic is not counted towards your account stats and won’t be throttled. The only time it becomes ‘your’ traffic is when you choose to download the files from a finished torrent to your home PC, and uploading torrent traffic will not eat into your cap.

      5, Safety

      With a seedbox, you don’t even need to use a BitTorrent client on your home computer.

      So if you fancy having a play with a seedbox this is what you will get.

      Fully set up so you can use it straight away.

      10GB’s of HD space (not a lot I know but it is only a trial)

      Speed of 20Mbit both ways

      FTP access, so you can download your files.

      This is offer is available for the first 15 people that would like to have a trial.

      Hi,

      I would be very interested in getting a seedbox trial please! if they're still available of course

      Thankyou kindly.
      Still unsure about getting SKY+HD or just upgrade the HDD in my SKY+ Box

      Is there a torrent limit? Are you letting us purchase this after our trail is done? If so how much are you charging? How long is the trial? thanks for the trial.

      You will see this is only for UK user and the reason I am offering the trial of the box is because the speed issue that UK users have.

      Sorry guys.
