"RapidShare is very popular in Brazil, particularly since the platform is so
easy to operate. Not only private individuals, but also many Brazilian
companies have been won over and are using it. We believe that the extremely
high upload and download speeds, coupled with the ease of operation, have made
RapidShare so successful", Wilkinson Eldon Vilaca Pereira, CEO at Contas
Premium commented. The business model of the Brazilian company is based on the
sale of premium accounts. "Brazilian users have been looking for a local
partner for a long time. Together with RapidShare, we have been able to bring
the service a little closer and vigorously expand our clientele."
    "We started working together with RapidShare from the very beginning and
are impressed by the concept. The management of premium accounts is very
simple, quick and, thanks to the superb support provided by RapidShare,
customer satisfaction is high", said Jan Koza, managing director at HEND, spol
s.r.o., a Prague-based internet service provider. "We regard ourselves as
fortunate to be a RapidShare reseller."
