    Default Newsgroups?

    I have a 30mb/s download speed and I use services like Filesonic, Megaupload, Rapidshare etc. to download content. I never get more than 2mb/s (on a good day) when I downloading. I pinged my service to verify my internet speed. I hear that newsgroups will maximize my download speed when downloading content from their servers. If anyone is familiar with them please recommend and/or shed some light for me. My goal is to see a much faster speed when I'm downloading or there's no reason for me to have this fast speed. Thanks!

    Astraweb is the best usenet provider I've ever used, plus they don't delete tv shows unlike some other providers (Newshosting).
    prices:

    $25 for 180GB no time limits & unlimited speed

    $15 for a month unlimited speed

    $10 for a month capped at 5Mbit/s

    Completely agree with this. Been with newshosting for years and their retention is starting to get crappy. Astrawebs speed can sometimes fluctuate but their retention is great. And no matter how much people try to panic you, it's just as anonymous as RS, MU etc.

    you get uncapped speed with MU and other hosts. I tried usenext, they ripped me off, good thing I got a refund. I actually get better download speeds with Jdownloader and MU premium than usenext... Just buy vouchers for MU instead of prices they have on the site, its much cheaper.

    newsgroups are amazing if you google astraweb special offer they have an unlimited plan for like 7 which is what ive been on for 2 years

    you get unlimited downloads huge retention and the speed is uncapped you'll only get capped by your isp (i download 8gb and get capped to 10mb from 30mb for 3 hours)
