Re: BB250 Horrible Speeds

Yeah Giga and super are one of the same.

I use Astra and super. I split the total connection between both their eu and us servers as well

Just to add. When your using usenet are you downloads unraring on the same hdd that the other downloads are completing too? I found that moving that directory onto a ssd made some differences in my speed as well

I've been lead to believe that Giga and Astraweb are the only two real usenet providers selling service. Most others are Giga resellers.

Anyone have more facts on that?

That tells you who is a reseller and who isn't.

Nice list, some people are missing, like Astraweb.

Dunno why they missed out on Astraweb. I'm currently using NewsDemon, which is peered through Highlands. My guess is that the big three are based in the U.S., while Astraweb is based out of Singapore (even though they have servers in the U.S.)
