[Newsgroups] Highwinds?

Is Highwinds as we use for usenet the same people as the Highwinds CDN company?

Yes they are. You will see their CDN network quite a bit if you do a trace route to their usenet servers.

Thanks for getting back to me.

So, even though for usenet their servers are generally only in Europe and the USA, they have peers in other parts of the world (for example in Asia they have peers in Singapore, South Korea and Japan), does that mean if you are in these countries, you could expect good usenet connection speeds?

You certainly could expect it....but the only thing to do is test it out first hand.
