Yesterday, I posted that I was taking advantage of an IDrive Promotion. Well my initial impressions are not good.
This is strictly based on the amount of time it is taking to upload data. At the current rate, to upload 180GB of data is going to take months.
I have not determined why the upload rate is so slow, but if I can’t get the rate to increase, then the experiment has failed.
My experience with DropBox has been much different, which is why I thought this was worth a try, but until I find a reason for the extremely low upload speed, my recommendation is forget it, at least if you are living in Panama.
UPDATE: I have been testing my Cable Onda Speed and it is far below what it should be. That being the case, until I resolve that issue, I need to hold off on the IDrive evaluation. I should have 5Mb’s down and 1 Mb/s up.
UPDATE:The down load speed is close to normal now. The upload speed is better, but not satisfactory.
