      GIGANEWS - problems?

      Hello folks...

      Quite new to Sky BB and so far so good (tampting fate eh)..

      My question is this, I used to be with VM and use Giganews for usenet downloads etc where I was always able to achieve max download speeds.

      Now i am with Sky Max (router stats below) I can only ever get about 7 or 8 Mbps from Giganews (either server) when I download using Newsbin Pro. If I use both Easynews and Giganews my download speeds go upto 13.9Mbps??

      Can sky be throttling the Giganews feed?

      Or can anyone see a problem with my router stats?

      Any help would be much appreciated, my experiences so far with sky have been great - cannot complain at al - maybe I have been lucky?

      Cheers

      Andy

      if you can get max speed with a different news client (but same news server) then its not sky but some setting in the news client.

      i found that grabit was less on sky than plusnet, but switching to newsleecher got me back up to full speed (both using same news server).

      Cheers, i'll give newsleacher a try

      I did try the speed test over on Giganews and that only showed i could get about 4.5Mbps? Weird!

      Still not complaining - 10 a month for 13Mbps with Sky (considering even with the 20Mbps VM service i could only get about 17Mbps).

      All part of the fun i suppose trying different things.
