Re: [Extreme Plus] speed test

Is your LAN 100mbit or Gigabit? If only 100mbit, then that explains your 90megabit max speed tests.

As for downloads of 50-65mbps, if this is a single source download then that's not actually that bad. You'll likely need to download multiple files from multiple sources to use all 150mbps of download capacity.

Agreed. A lot of folks don't realize their download speed is limited to the upload speed of the server they're downloading a file from.

You can't download any faster than the fileserver can send it to you unless you're getting the file/files from multiple sources simultaneously.

Your usenet provider probably can't/won't send at 150Mbps. I can't max out my connection with Newshosting, as an example. Who is your usenet provider?

Only one answer to that problem...PRIVATE TRACKER. I have been able to max out my connection with enough seeders, that's only possible on private tracker. Anything public and you are asking for slow speed, even usenet is technically speed limited based on the server.

Edit: Almost forgot, youtube can max out that 150mbps as well, only in 1080p though and it must be a rogers toronto server and it must be off peak hours lol, otherwise its about 25-100mbps as it varies a lot

You need a different usenet provider anyway. Since Astra has automated their DMCA takedowns, they're not worth using. Or so I've heard.

I get 14-16 MB/s with Newshosting and 30 connections. If you want to pay for it, you can get 60 connections.

Check here for better choices than Astra.
