      I find it depends on which reading I trust. Utorrent reports a constant speed of 1.6Mb, but at the same time NetMeter reports between 1.8 and 1.9Mb. Perhaps NetMeter is taking into account transmission overheads?

      You can get much higher speeds on newsgroups if you use a download manager like ReGet, FlashGet, GetRight, etc. I get my full 4.5 Megs with EasyNews and ReGet Deluxe. The speed you get on torrents will largely depend on how you have it set up, and how many seeds you can rake up.
