Yeah i had a few problems with it i swapped ports over to 3128 and it was better . (Standard routing ports port(s): 119, 23, 25, 80, 3128 )
I can't myself seem to get ports 23,25,80 to work?
Got to say if this carries on i'll swap to giganews as you can doa test on there site and it's fine all the time for me.
This has happened a few times for me now not sure why though?

if you mean newshosting.com best to use port 9000, and if that ever slows down use 8000 and don't forget to bump up the max threads to 10□□□ Powered by Sky Broadband Unlimited □□□

Newshosting used to have periodic problems when I used them. I got tired of it in the end and switched to Giganews. No complaints here.

Ok newshosting has gone really slow agian for me from around 4pm 1st november and still now at 2 november 6am.
It seems to be a problem with Newshosting as downloads on other things are hitting 1.6meg.
I've tried other ports but still no good!
Is anyone having problems on giganews with Sky?

No problems with Giganews here. I used to subscribe to Newshosting, but changed to Giga, as I found that NH did have inexplicable periods of slowdown.
