Hello! i have recently jumped on to the usenet wagon after using torrents for years(which i now regret! ).I bought a one off 180gb from astraweb just 4 days ago to test the waters and im using the Alt.Binz program.Im from europe so im using the EU SSL server.Anyway to the point! the first few days were fantastic i was getting 700kbps per second on my 8mbit connection which i have only seen once in my life on torrents because my ISP called eclipse throttles badly.But now for two days solid i only hover around the 120kbps to 160kbps i have tried changing the different ports and increasing/decreasing connections and still no luck.If i run a speed test im getting 6.4mbps,is this an astraweb issue or is it possible for my ISP to throttle usenet even through SSL?
Thankyou and any suggestions welcome!
