External Usenet servers KAPUT again?

Does anyone have a problem with external usenet servers? Or is it only me again?
I can't seem to get speed over 0 Kbps for the last three days round the clock, can't even retrieve the headers. Usenetserver.com ............... Cry

Thanks, chaps. Must be some kind of selective management - we are heavy loaders being a big family. Still not over the limit. . . It is my billing day today so I'll see what it is going to be like tomorrow.

Btw ftp works all right, managed to use an alternative source for those Linux CDs and it all came in no time, full 2Mb speed...

PS A bit later: just checked the connection and usenet speed back to normal. Loaded headers and the files .... Touch wood...

Ah hu, linux cd's over usenet eh, interesting, interesting.

Well, it could always just be your provider dropping out a bit, check on their pages see if they have any outages reported.

That's what the usenet is for, isn't it? Shockedops: Tongue
It is a kind of raw pre-beta linux version at a stage not worth bothering with P2P...
And A LOT of documentation to boot... :lol:

No, I checked with my newsprovider, they were OK, no outages..

Blast! I've forgotten to touch wood and has gone back to almost zero again.
Doubt it is contention, it is management.

I've seen my GigaNews connection drop to crawliong speeds as well. I normally find a solution is to drop and re-establish your connetion. Each time I do this speed picks up again on all activities not just News.

It could be a problem somewere on PlusNet network but to be frank as I've already terminated my account and am just counting out the days I can't be bothered taking investigations any further. :roll:
