Would some kind soul...?


I'm on BB+.

Over the past couple of weeks I've found it difficult to download postings from GRC.COM newsgroups. Download speeds typically drop to 0.25 KB/s (yes, quarter of a kilobyte). Sometimes I only get headers (I assume the connection times out). Sometimes no connection at all.

Just wondered whether any other Plusnetters use said newsgroups and are having similar problems.

If none of you out there do use these groups, I wondered if some kind soul (maybe even a Plusnet staffer) would set up an account with them briefly to check if it's my connection or my computer setup.
