[Extreme Plus] Usenet seem to be throttled now!

I use to get speeds of 4 to 5 MB/s now its down to 500 KB to 1.5MB/s I want to know if anyone else is getting slower speeds now on usenet.

I'll take a guess this is more you're usenet provider having an issue then rogers doing anything. My usenet is working fine.

I just did a download at 19mb/s so it is likely your usenet provider that is the culprit

Hey I just tried 3 providers out giganews newshosting and usenetserver . They all start around 10MB/s then gradually go to 200KB/s. What is a good provider and what port should they be on.

What reader are you using? Also, if the file is already been dcma'd, this can be happening. Saw it a few times lately. Seems like I am getting it, then all the sudden, nothing, when I looked closer, found out why.

Shouldnt be ANY throttling now by any ISP in Canada.

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.

Rogers is throttling all the commonly used usenet ports now.

Do you just make this stuff up, or do you have any proof to back up your claim?

I d/l every day at full speed of 75Mbit and grab at least 10 gigs a day with no problems. Like others have said the file could be removed due to copyright violations. When that happens, it looks like you are d/ling it at a very slow rate, but really there is nothing there. That has been happening more and more recently.
