Speedtest is good. There's nothing wrong with your connection. Basically wherever you're loading from can't deliver fast enough.

It is amazing how many folks don't realize their DL speed is limited/downgraded to the DL speed capability of the server/site they are downloading from......

so i might as well go back to my 32 if thats all am going to get insted of paying more money but i thought using nzb gave you unlimited speed

nzb is essentially a table of contents which speeds the *finding* of newsgroup entries for downloading. So, instead of looking through a ToC for "The fountain Part 1-of-5" through every header, you look through an NZB source for The fountain and it returns page numbers for the entries, making it quicker to get to the entry. It changes NOTHING at all about the speed of download.

Except that good usenet servers have some of the fastest connections to the internet. Question is what usenet server is he using.

What usenet server are you using?

How many simultaneous connections is altbins set for?

Yes, it can. Does altbinz have an indicator anywhere that it's pausing because the HD can't keep up?

Astraweb's site says they allow 20. Try that to see if it helps.

I actually had to set my Newhosting connection up for 25 connections in order to get my full 75mbps download speed. Try increasing your connection count.
