    My DL speed is 120 KBps. I use the Cox news server. Will I get better speeds if I switch to a different server? Which server is good for fast downloads?

    Open 4 total connections to news.east.cox.net and/or news.west.cox.net (mix/match) and tell us if the speed with 4 is fast enough.

    Oh, wow! That made it really fast. Now it's 240 KBps. Thanks for the tip.

    If I pay for a news server will I get even faster speeds? And how fast are we talking?

    Thanks, and sorry for the stupid questions--I'm a "n00b"

    asfdlq3i45poi if you pay to use a decent new server (giganews etc) then you should be able to max out your connection easily
