Download speed from newsgroups

Hi,
Is there a limit or cap on the download speed you can get from newsgroups - mine seems to plateau out at 1.9/2.0 MB/s
My line connection is roughly 17mb connection
Any ideas?
Thanks!

That sounds about right to me.
1 MB/s = 8 Mb/s
So getting 2MB/s is around what I'd expect on a 17Mb/s line.

Think you already know as plusnet replied but 1 Mega Byte (1MB) is equal to 8 mega bits (8Mb) .  Smiley
