How many connections can you use until you hit your max download speed? If you only need about 5, then stick with that. It frequently happens that using too many connections drops the speed.

It's also possible that your provider is using traffic shaping. If your usenet provider supports SSL, please use that. Don't forget to change the port number too from 119 to 563 or another port available by your provider.

try using a different Usenet client and see if the problem is only with Newsleecher or with all Usenet traffic. outlook express comes with all Windows installations
Please be aware of and use the following pages...
Services Status Page : SuperSearch and Usenet Access server status, retention, server load, indexing time, etc.
Support Request Form : Use this if you have a problem with billing or account status. The forum is only for NewsLeecher application issues.

Are there any changes you made recently to your system, like installing a new version of your anti-virus or firewall, or install one of them? Please check the Howto's and FAQ section for incompatible or problematic software concering NNTP (usenet) traffic.
