Not bad for an ISP I think...
I'm with Blueyonder and their Newsgroup always gives me top speed and I've never had any complaints from them about the huge amounts of data traffic.
Same here with ntl, but i think that may change soon.Originally Posted by MCHeshPants420
NTL have like 7 day retention and great speeds but they have hardly any decent groups. No Xbox groups, no DVDr groups and hardly any pc iso groups.
Well we have all groups that I know of which is nice also...
I have NYC's RoadRunner (RR) cable with 6mbit download cap. I can access RR's newsserver at the maxed out 6mbit as well. Just that the retention really suck.
I make use of Blueyonder's news server quite heavily; they carry all the groups I've looked for, retention is about 4 days (though sometimes stuff is purged sooner for some reason) with excellent completion and my connection is always maxed out when NBP is running.
I can't complain about this free service at all.

There isn't a bargepole long enough for me to work on [a Sony Viao] - clocker 2008
same here in so.cali (5mbit though)Originally Posted by Wes2
the retention is the only bad thing about RR
other than that, i mean, ffs....
they have NEVER asked questions...
never capped due to huge amounts of dl's
i could go into a binge where i am dl'ing 20-30 GB per week....
some fkrs wont give you that in a month
(in fact, i am considering paying the extra 10 bucks for their pro/business service
bumps up to an 8mbit line, and hopefully more upload, i need to check into it still...)
I also have time warner. It maxes out speed, but retention sucks. Usually only a day (or two if I'm lucky).
Since I have my new connection I easily get speeds over 700KB/s
