    Question Mark

    I've never used newsgroup software, so I was wondering if you get better download speeds on newsgroups? I'd start using them if so.

    Yep, you'll almost always max your connection.

    My speeds seem to be up and down but Im assuming thats my ISP.

    I max out my 3meg line, 360k a second. From my ISP's new servers. They carry all decent binary groups
