    I just got my usenet access
    (http://www.usenetserver.com)

    Now I'm using NewsLeecher.....
    I only seem to be able to find scene releases and crap like that....
    I was hoping to find better stuff like Karagarga content/lossless audio etc.....is that possible or is it all the same old garbage??
    Another thing I tried a NZB from here, and it trickled in at 100k/s so I cancelled it. Is that normal? It was on the 1st page (so new).

    I'm thinking I might have just wasted $15???

    EDIT: Trying alt.binaries.karagarga.................

    And remember that most people do not see scene releases as crap, it's what they want

    I get 3MB/s from Giganews and that's 100% of my internet connection 24/7.

    Most people don't get scene stuff from anything else than P2P etc. and you cannot say that that's faster. If you have other sources, use them.

    I don't know what content you are after but I find more content on usenet than I do on P2P etc. Of course I find a lot of stuff on certain ftp sites (and they have content available a few hours faster than NG's) too but I don't have storage space to download more than 350-600 GB per month so I don't care.

    Maybe NG's isn't the thing for you, I don't know.

    Mail the provider and ask for their EU server if you don't use it already. I tried Usenetserver but did not get any good speeds there (got around 800KB/s) but I think it's related to location.

    You might also sign up for a free 1GB trial @ Giganews just to check if you get better speeds there (remember to use the EU server).

    300k/s is still not good ...

    im a n00b to usenet myself (been usin it for 2 weeks) but i came from 4 years of Bittorrenting, i was lucky if i topped 120 kb/s but averaged around 50 kb/s usin bittorent ... started using usenet and, looking at my speed now, im hittin around 3mb/s ...
    basically i cant help ur situation cause i dont know much myself, but i can cosign to what multiforce is saying ... stick w/usenet and try to figure out why ur speeds arent hitting what they could ...

    it use to take about 8-10 hours to DL'd a 3gb file from bittorent ... now i can pull those in - in about a half hour or so ... stick w/it ...

    service im using: http://newshosting.com/
    NZB client: alt.binz

    What is your max speed? What does speedtest.com tell you?

    It may not be good compared to you, but it may be his max.
