Usenet Download Problems

Hi,

Over the last couple of months I seem to be getting consistently slow
downloads from news-europe.giganews.com, I haven't seen a connection
above 0.50KB / sec, on other ISP broadband connections I regularly
get over 150KB.

Is this some kind of traffic shaping? I'm not a particularly high use
customer (I can't be with speeds like this).

The package I'm on is:

PlusNet Small Business Premier - Up to 2Mb (Annual Contract, Hardware Offer)

With a Zyxel Prestige router.

Any hints or pointers?

I've now replaced my perfectly fine router with another make/model, I'm having the same problems.

This is the same problem as described by another user in 'Giganews Borked'

I had exactly the same problem with easynews.com which miraculously fixed itself when my account was 'upgraded' onto the new package.

Having the same problem to giganews.

Originally thought it was a gateway issue, so logged off and back on to get a new gateway. That fixed it for a couple of hours.

However, checked this morning. Still dire speeds and changed gateways to no effect.

Ticked raised.
