Hello,

 

Is it possible to allow users disabling ad blocker on nexus to download at higher speed ? (like 5MB/s instead of 2MB/s).

Basically when not using an adblocker it's like we're supporting the website, Nexus get money for servers and most of the user will disable ad blocker.

 

Thanks :laugh:

Using an AdBlocker gets you 1Mb/s

Not using an adblocker gets you 2Mb/s

They were being generous allowing 2Mb/s for non-paying members who don't use an adblocker

If they upped it to 5 Mb/s eventually someone will come along and ask it to be raised to 8mb/s

5 Mb/s is the speed that some paying members get.

No they won't. The Nexus gets very little funding from the ads

If it's the case, it just don't work then, i download at 2MB/s if i enable it.

Yeah, because most of the people use an adblocker, with 5 ad on each page it'll be largely worth for them.

Even if everyone stopped using adblockers, it wouldn't be worth it. Especially since paying members are where the actual revenue that keeps the site running comes from. Datk0ne has even said he would rather remove all the ads than keep them. To do that he needs enough people paying for premium to do so.
