    I use Newsdemon and my ISP is Sky.

    Up until about 3 weeks ago I was able to download at 900 KB/S but now it's dropped right down and seems to max out at 180 KB/S.

    I'm 99% certain it's not Newsdemon so it must be an issue with Sky. Does anyone know what the problem might be? I tried calling them but their customer service line isn't the most helpful!!

    USN is a junk provider.
    They were one of the best, then about six months ago they started having "issues" and have been having them on and off ever since.

    If you do a search of the forum you will see they are one of the most complained about Usenet providers.

    ISP - SKY

    Since yesterday or even maybe the day before I have been reaching maximum downstream of 200kb from newsdemon server (all three useast, uswest, europe).

    I have now been with newsdemon for maybe longer than 12 months and my latest membership runs out end of this month I am sure. Well then since I joined newsdemon my service has 70% been good 15% acceptable 15% sh*t.

    There's some chance that it's your location, there's some chance that it's newsdemon or your ISP.

    I believe newsdemon has live support. I would use it.
    If that doesn't work, I would recommend an account at giganews for about $3 more a month. 200 days retention, zero downtime, zero speed problems.

    I'm not 1000% sure isn't part of the problem but after doing an extensive test series I can definitely see that Usenet server is most of the problem. As a consequence I discontinued sercvice -- vote with your feet.
