    I now have ComCast, being an ATTBI costumer and being switched over.
    My newsserver is not news.nj.comcast.giganews.com AFAIK, but it is
    netnews.comcast.net and I can use other servers as well.
    Is this because I was transferred to ComCast from ATTBI or what? Will I also
    be having the 1GB limit? If not, why.
