Newsgroup issue in Tampa


Recommended Posts


I recently had FIOS installed and like the service, but my question is has anybody had any problems d/l from newsgroups.  My speeds that I usually receive are around 350kB/s - 400kB/s.  Is there some sort of cap that verizon puts on newsgroup?  Sorry if this has been asked already.  Forgot to add that I usually d/l with 8 concurring streams at a time.

I dont believe that they are putting any caps on the newsgroups, as I have gotten over 14mbs down on them (this was during the week) on the weekends I seem to avg 3-6 mbs. What OS are you using? Have you used any of the tweaks on this site? I copied Halo's settings. I use newsbin which program are you using? Have you tried a tracert to the verizon newsgroup servers?

heres mine

tracert news.veriozn.net
