    Hello folks, today I have been experimenting with newsdemon (usenet) . Paid for a 25gb block. Have been using my wireless laptop, with PIA vpn, newsreader grabit.
    Very disappointed with download speeds, averaging between 1mbs - 2 mbs.
    Tried various things, ( changing ports, no vpn) to no effect.
    Tried wired desktop, no vpn, and immediately got 8mbs
    I have recently changed routers, i get 150mbs wired, and 50mbs wireless.
    Anyone any ideas ? Why wired would yield better results ? Still think 8mbs is disappointing, I thought the idea of usenet was no or little speed restrictions.
    Many thanks

    EDIT
    Just found this http://www.newsdemon.com/how-fast.php
    so the max download is about an eighth of your internet speed !
