    Question How come

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I have a 56k modem and when I listen to anything that is on Nowhere radio It is buffered and ready to go in about 2 minutes.
    Any other site takes at least 15 minutes so I dont bother to download.

    How come NWR is so quick, is it on the same server or somethin??

    It's because NWR uses actual streaming, not DLAPB (Download and Playback), depending on what the artists settings are. For lo-fi, every single one is actual streaming.

    DLAPB is easy to do (any morron can point an M3U at an mp3), streaming is not, so most sites do DLAPB.
