Re: [Extreme Plus] Usenet seem to be throttled now!

Usenet hasn't really been throttled in Canada. As for the speeds, it sounds like a copyright owner has done a dcma on the stuff. This is exactly what you are seeing. Try downloading a Linux distro and see what happens.

OK, not sure how I can explain this any easier, if you start to download something, then it stops, or slows right to a crawl, depending on which reader you are using, odds are what you are downloading has been removed, its gone, period. You cannot download it. There are many links about things being removed from usenet. Its got nothing to do with Rogers.

Download something that isn't copyright protected, and come back and let us know your results.

Good place to start would be the newsreader log to verify this. If removals, it would be full of errors showing this.
