And to correct another item in your first post, P2P is not being scrapped, heavily traffic shaped yes, but not scrapped.

So if we opt to use an external news server are plusnet going to still apply management to NNTP ports as before ? :roll:

Yep, as explained elsewhere regardless of where the usenet server is located the same amount of bandwidth on the BT Centrals is still going to be used so it will still be subject to the same limits... though as completion rates should be higher I suspect people won't have to retry as much etc...
