      Decline In Speed Since Using Newsgroups

      I have recently moved house and have transferred to Sky broadband connect from Telewest 4 meg at my old house.

      Speed tests have revealed that my line is reaching speeds of about 6meg or thereabouts with Sky.

      I use Newsbin Pro as a newsreader and newshosting.com as my News server.

      I was getting speeds of 4 to 5.5 Mbps with the default port of 119, then the speeds dropped drastically after about a week so I changed to ports 7000, 8000 and 9000.

      On each change of port the speeds were once again 4 to 5.5Mbps before dropping drastically until I had used each port.

      Now none of these ports perform over 500k's, are Sky throttling these ports???

      regards,

      Neil

      *update, I have just turned my newsreader on at 1235 PM and am getting immediate speeds of 6Mbps, can someone explain this erratic behaviour as for the last couple of days it hasn't gone above 500-600k
