Re: [TWC] TW Internet Ultra 50/5mbit getting only 1mb/sec Usenet

It's the same thing for me. So, I did some testing from my work and it gets full download speed like 10Mbps. At my house, if I use Usenet to dl, it caps at like 1.4Mbps, but the strange thing is, if I include another Usenet provider in my client, it doubles to to 2.8Mbps (60 connections total). I can dl from MS at 6.1 because I have the same 50/5 and this has been happening for about a week. I even changed ports to 443,80,23, non ssl, 119, all the same thing. TW has definitely changed something but I can't figure out what. My Usenet providers are are two different networks too. I started to think it was my router, but nothing has changed except the dl speeds to Usenet.

First pull up, then pull down.

This is the exact same speed I'm getting if I max-out my connections to 30.

TWC, whether they realize it or not, must be the cause.
