Does anyone else have problems with downloading postings in newsgroups? They seem to take ages!

I'm not talking about binaries either, just plain text!

Regards

No problem here I can download at over60KB/s from the Plus net newsgroups on ADSL (according to DU meter)

RE: Newsgroups

I think I may have given a false impression. My download speed is fine, but there is a long pause from when I select a message to it being downloaded and displayed!

It's only a matter of seconds, but it is a matter of seconds on a 1K file!

Anymore ideas?

Are you using Outlook Express?

I had a similiar sounding problem and found only one solution - Installing Forte Agent :-)
