Binary newsgroups ARE update but SLOOOOW|

Sorry I thought I was looking at extranews but was looking at the old news server instead.

However the extranew one is unusably slow
did you know about this ?

Do you have an order of magitude of time: days, weeks months etc when this news issue is likely to be fixed.

I'm getting an average transfer rate of about 40kbs which is real slow compared to the normal plus.net server on my ADSL line.
Shame as the completeion rate is excellent.

extranews is a contended service provided to our user base to share, while our own service is updated. As soon as the new service is ready to launch we will further announce this. It wont be long now.

Kind regards
