      I'm using news leecher and astraweb..... Same issue.

      Wondering if it's astraweb ?

      It's only recently I have had the issue. When I first got fibre I "ahem" tested out the usenet and was downloading smoothly at 4.4mbs. It's weird that it just suddenly starts to show.

      Is anyone else on Astra getting the same? Just trying to understand the common element here?

      You can get small cheap block accounts from some of the providers discussed in here. It never hurts to have a backup account to fill missing posts anyway, e.g. Blocknews
