The site blocks the download speed at 28 kb/s for free downloads, it's ridiculously low what makes each download incredibly long, I wanted to download an 200mb file... results 2h of download and I cannot even imagine the time it takes for a file of several gigabytes.
The site clearly forces the hand to take a subscription. It works with an affiliate system, every time a person signs up, the person who posted their link gets a commission, this is one of the worst ways to monetize their site, Nitroflare is notorious for scamming. Money not giving access to accounts after purchase and refuses refund. Worst way to monetize a site.
