View Full Version : News server delays since broadband upgrade

18-04-2006, 12:24 PM
My broadband speeds have gone up to about 300KB/sec which is very nice, but at the same time, my newsgroup client is now frequently experiencing long delays in connecting, like a minute or more before the connect is made. Once made, the speed is good, but then, if I reply to a news message, the newsreader just sits there for a minute or more waiting for Xtra to accept the upload.

I don't have the same delays when on the net in my browser, so I am wondering if Xtra has allocated a low priority to news groups which is costing me considerable time waiting for connects.

Anyone else have the same experience?
