Awful newsgroup speeds

I am using Giganews.

At the start of my Usage period I get good speeds (I'm on Premiere 2). But now I have reached almost 19GB peak-download I have difficult conmnecting at all. Previously I only noticed this after reaching the 20GB limit but this month it is earlier.

Outside of peak-times I don't seem to have any problems at all and PN just say my profile is OK so there isn't a problem.

With Premiere 2 I should be getting speeds of upto 128Kbps until 30GB is reached not reduced to nil at 19GB.

What is happening?

Hello MrChalk,

I use AstraWeb & GrabIt.

I haven't used the service for a few days - as it was pretty bad (around 30KB/s). That was off-peak Friday afternoon.

I just gave it another try and got between 5-10KB/s. Obviously, thats FAR worse that I was getting before.

Bittorrent is currently running at a spectacularly bad 3KB/s.

All things being equal, should the speeds be better or worse during peak times?

Currently I am half way through my billing period and my usage is 2GB Peak, 8GB Off-Peak. I wouldn't have thought I am being limited with those figures.
