I'm a Usenet user too, but why do people really care how long it takes to download ISO's?  Unless you are after 50GB files then it doesn't make that much of a difference?

Or are people not using automatic tools for this and manually downloading, hence waiting for them to complete?

I subscribe to 3 services, and used the map at https://www.reddit.com/r/usenet/comments/14wotq/a_map_of_usenet/ to ensure I wasn't just getting re-sellers, and I have providers from 3 different 'clouds' (on the map that is).

Only if I've wanted to install the iso that very second.  Normally I'm happy for it to be ready in the next couple of days and be sitting on my dashboard for "up next to install"

Exactly!  I have a loooong list of ISO's waiting for installation and its unlikely I am waiting for something urgently.

I can get almost to 23-24 versions before I finally start installing.

There's copyright-free public-domain movies I like to download, a lossless bluray runs up 20-50gb and unlike with music it's not hard to spot the difference.

SABnzbd has recently updated there software which was a major update and my speeds have pretty much doubled.

 

Was getting around 30MB/s now I'm getting 65MB/s 

 

On Bigpipe gigabit plan, everything is hardwired cat6.

 

Astraweb (50 connections) and newgroupdirect (as backup).

 

Pretty impressed.

 

Router is ASUS RT-AC68U and temp download HDD is a Samsung EVO SSD.
