    Default Newsgroups - Spluttering.

    I've been using Newsgroups for a while now, but recently it's become pretty rubbish.

    I'm using VM with a Newshosting (NHXL) account.
    But cannot seem to get a steady connection. Flittering on ad off at about 150Kb/sec (tops).

    Does anyone know if VM have limited or are blocking this service lately?
    Or whether it'd be my account at NH?

    It's worth rebooting your modem and router mate (If you have one). I've had problems with slow loads/DL's etc. that seem to flush themselves out after a power cycle.

    try a *free* 3 day/10GB trial account from giganews and see if the problem is the same.

    (remember to cancel tho before your trial is up)
