I'm using newshosting with Sky BB getting awful download speeds?
General http and FTP speeds are good, but via newshosting I'm getting around 60kbps
I have another max package with another provider (same speed) and I'm getting 600kbps+ through newshosting.
Anyone noticed this?

i am not connected to sky yet, but i do use newshosting, have you tried other port numbers? 23, 25, 80, 7000, 8000, 9000

Yes I have tried 23, 25, 80, 7000 (in fact I've tried all the ports listed on newshosting's server page) but still no change in D/L speed. As I said http downloads and FTP downloads are very good. Very odd

Ive have speeds on some groups at like 1400kbps, but some others really slow at around 400kbps
I think its during peak times. As it was the same when i had NTL 10MB.
Different times of the day herald different results.
And also, what program are you using ?
I use grabit 1.5.3 as its the most stable rgarding d/l speeds.
The latest one is quite good, but ill stick with mine till a proper release.

how many connections are you using?
do a traceroute to the newshosting server. and see if anything strange is going on.
goto run, and type cmd
then tracert unlimited.newshosting.com
here is my one, using a bt connection.
Tracing route to unlimited.newshosting.com [184.108.40.206]

I have two Max conenctions one with Sky the other with Freeola, both the routers are on the same network but obviously configured with different IP addresses. If I switch my machines default gateway to the Freeola router then my speeds fly through newshosting (600kbs+) if I then switch the gateway back to SKYBB then use grabit my speeds drop to 60kbs or less.
I will do a couple of traceroutes and pathpings tonight

Welcome to the site imcarm
I have tried and can Max my connection (1.45MB/s) on newshosting no problem at all and I and connected with a SkyBB IPRay
Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
If you would like to know the straight line distance to your exchange then
Would you like an idea of the possible speeds you will get with the Max Package then click here or for the Connect Package then click here
