I am currently with NTL on 1mb broadband and phone line for about £29 per month. I use Azureus for downloads, plus NTL's newsserver to access newsgroups. If I switch to Bulldog, I get 4mb plus phone for £30pm, but no usenet service. Will the increase in speed make up for only being able to use Azureus? Or if I need to join a charging newsserver, who and how much?? The initial excitement of 4mb speed has worn off now (especially after only recently discovering the speed of newsservers on NTL.) Any thoughts/advice will be gratefully received. Regards, Dean.
