    Looks like the assholes at Telecom are up to their old tricks.

    Since late last week I've experienced a progressive slowdown of Usenet
    download speeds using various ports. Yesterday and today those speeds
    are slower than my old dial-up speeds.

    I guess that's Telecom-Xtra's devious way of telling me it's time to
    choose one of their new plans.

    Looks like corporate deceit is alive and well at Telecom.

    Kinda puts paid to the lie that Telecom/Xtra's DSL is faster than dialup. ;o)
