    So sorry if this has been covered but I'd like personal replies, what speeds would I be looking at getting if I subscribed?
    I'm currently with my free news server (Blueyonder) my connection is 10meg and I'm constantly downloading at top speed 1.2meg or thereabouts.

    Would I still see this speed with Newshosting.com?

    As you know, free news servers have shit retention I think Blueyonder's is a week, hence why if I join a paid server for a month I can get all the stuff I need then just use my Blueyonder server and get the files the day they come out.

    I wasn't going to buy it in the first place, so me downloading it for free isn't losing them any money.

    any premium news server will max out your line just fine.

    Update: just brought it, only getting about 600kb/s but it's a lot better than what I was getting on Bittorent so bring it on

    try changing your ports? the newshosting FAQ should have alternative ones that they support.

    I use newshosting.com, but I only have a 3meg lines, so I max out really easily.
