Slow download speeds

Hi guys,

I have a question: does Newsleecher have limitations related to download handling?
I have a fiber 500/500 connection. With Newsleecher it reaches half of my capacity or less. When I start another newsreader (I won't tell the name because this is a Newsleecher forum) it maxes out my connection and downloads are full speed.
I tested this with a friend at his home and the same results there. I think Newsleecher has a max of 20-25mb of speed handling.
Can this be increased soon?

Having the same issue here.
Also a 500/500 fiber connection, running on Beta 14 with the newsleecher package, 29 bots.
Intel I7 and SSD, don't get the message that Newsleecher is paused because writing to disk.

My download speed maxs out at 34MB/s. Is this the max for Newsleecher programm or do I have to change certain settings?
Also the speedmeter takes a long time to catch up with the downloading speed.
