Slow Usenet download speeds

I have an AtlanticBB 5 Mbps down account.

Since moving from from Texas (where I had Comcast) to Maryland, my Usenet provider (Giganews) download speed has dropped dramatically. At first, I thought it was Giganews, but I signed up for a month with Supernews and Newshosting and I get the same slow speed.:(

My second guess was my Linksys router, but the slow speed remains even when I plug the cable modem directly to my pc.

I tried another port in Agent, but it's still slow.

Regular web downloads are at full speed.

Is AtlanticBB slowing traffic on typical newsreader ports?

I'm running GrabIt! and I'm getting steady 250kbs speeds no problem on my ABB connect using a Easynews.com account. Default ports too!
