What speed are you getting?
Newshosting's giving me 25MB/s which is a 5th of my ISP speed, wondering if you guys are pulling anything better.

200Mbps sounds pretty asesome for a Usenet feed. I doubt you'll get any better than that - if you're wondering why you really do need to understand how threaded connections work and why you'll never get 1Gbps to the entire Internet which in itself if the reason why Gigabit plans are pointless for 99% of people.

Ask end users connected to a Conklin cabinet and then tell them the speed you are getting

300Mbps, but I think it is the PC that is the ceiling.

30-70MB/s depending on the time of day, yet to see it go any higher. This is on Tweaknews.

Check out our latest monthly report - especially take a look at the 200Mb/s fibre results.  Checking our GigE panelists their results are very similar - especially the non-speed tests, where the performance is fundamentally no different from much slower fibre speeds. (we have 9 GigE at present because we are not asking panelists to return the probes while we discuss/review testing the service)

 

October report here

I use Easynews, but over http, and get my connection speed most of the time (~100 mbps).

depends what your doing, but usenet and torrent users wouldn't necessarily agree with the above :)

So many things break down at high access speed (and especially with high latency)... I'd assert that virtually all 'gig' speedtests are badly compromised or extremely narrow in their applicability.

 

I've seen completely reasonable 10Mbps speeds on a gig line (ie. that result was exactly what I expected) and I have constructed tests showing a genuine 900+Mbps on the same line from the US.

 

The takeaway there?

 

I've got two completely valid tests on the same gig line. One is 10Mbps, the other is over 900Mbps.

 

Without a significant amount of context around both, neither is actually a useful measure.

Line speed (100Mbps). I know better than to waste more money on a gig line right now.

I'm confused, no sign of NNTP or usenet found on that page?
