Third Party Usenet SLOOOOWWWW!!

Not here
Just downloaded with an average of 3MB/sec. Try switching of your router/modem for 5 or ten minutes and then reconnect. I have had this in the past and the switch off then wait which normally puts you on a different gateway seems to solve the issue. I raised a case with astraweb a few months ago and got excellent customer service and they sent me details of traces which proved the issue to be at plusnets end.

Good luck

I'm using Astraweb and have no probs.

Which of their servers are you using btw?

I find the euro one to be the best atm.

Yeah Euro server is also best for me, I've been using Astraweb for a while now but may switch to http://usenet-news.net/index1.php?url=get anyone tried them? They have 71 day retention on binaries. Giganews retention at Astraweb prices Smiley

I am on Euro Server. Tried switching off but has made no difference, down to about 60KB/s now.

I've requested my MAC, I'm off to New Net.
