Newsgroup download problems!

Hi, I am new to plus net and ADSL in general, was on NTL however now I have moved house I dont have to put up with their [censored] services.

Anyway I have come to switch on my pc today and connection seems to be good so far apart from a few connection losses on battlefield 2 but nothing to complain about.

However I am very concerned at the speeds I am reaching on my news group service, I am only getting a maximum 25 KB/s down! Did a little more testing on this and web downloads (from microsoft servers and fileplanet) show that I can download on average around 350-400 KB/s. Whats going on with this, I know there is traffic shaping but this is not what I expected.

Please advise me on anything I can do to improve this speed.

Many thanks

Newsgroup download problems!

Open up as many connections to the server as your provider allows. See if that helps...

Which PN account are you on?

Is this the PC, Xbox or PS2 version of Battlefield2?

Did you have the same problems whilst with NTL?
