Question

StreamlineNet - Are they any good???


www.streamlinenet.co.uk

I am thinking about taking thier bulk user package.

I have seen a few posts flaming this company but they seem to be from people who failed to read thier terms and conditions corectly reguarding the 30 day trial.

Anyone have anything good to say about them?

Are they fast, reliable and have good download speeds?

Good, fast support?

thanks

I would be VERY cautious since they advertise unlimited space and unlimited bandwidth. It does say if they can't give enough bandwidth they will refund, but I have yet to see a provider that offers "unlimited everything" stay in business for long.

For reviews, do a search.

You'll have to ask them for a test file to check speed.

And unlimited space? Unlimited bandwidth? Many members of this board will be along shortly to explain why it does not exist and how any host advertising it is pretty much lying through their teeth.

IMHO, not a host you want to go to.

Yeah, I know they have to pay for bandwidth like every other host so I took the "unlimited" statement for what it is.

Are there any other competetative "high use" suppliers out there?

I personally do not agree with these "unlimited" space/bandwidth offerings, it is false marketing as there is no such thing as "unlimited" sized hard drives. Really they should be advertising the max allocation you can use, if they allow you to store 100GB on that package - why not advertise 100GB instead of unlimited?
