Usenet Almost Non-existant speed tonight from Astraweb

Is there a problem with Usenet tonight my usenet isnt even reaching 1kb. It was like this last night also. But after midnight it sprung into action.

Is there a problem with peak usenet or is there a problem with my account.

Cheers

No problems that I know of, but the new segment we added this week isn't yet properly balanced into the network so the benefit of the extra capacity isn't properly spread around yet. I'd suggest disconnecting and reconnecting and see if it makes any difference, THN-AG1 looks to be the best gateway to be on at the moment.

Ok Will do.
I have just tried to connect to www.news.astraweb.com and it is running at a snails pace. So it looks like the problem may be with Astraweb.

Usenet Almost Non-existant speed tonight from Astraweb

I've just done a 120MB download from Astraweb and it was absolutely flying:



The second block is where I went for the PAR2 files.

I was averaging well over 700k bytes/sec

Edit: On gateway pte-ag1
