I had COX cable for about 3 years now and i've just now started useing there news groups for downloading pretty much anything I can get my hands on.... I use Newsbin Pro for getting on to there server. They only allow 4 ports per ip address. With only 4 ports I have been pulling around 1.5Mbps download speeds. Does anyone here really use there news group provided by there ISP? And if so what are some tricks of the trade. I have found out a way to get 8 ports open from my isp and therefore pull around 2.5Mbps to 2.8Mbps. Just was curious to who all likes and dislikes there News group?
