    In between 600Kb/s and 625Kb/s, I would say. Yes get newshosting, and use the advert on the top of the screen please.

    You're not only most likely to max out your connection speed,you'll also experience the joy of constant speeds.

    And unlike on all p2p networks,you don't rely on the upload speed of other users to get what you want or have to worry about the availability of sources.

    hmm...asspie

    I agree and the only downfall to newsgroups which it will never be that popular is that files are only held a certain amount of time (usually max 40 or 50 days), unlike on other p2p networks where the files can be shared forever.

    Obviously not wishing to appear churlish.
