    There is no doubt about it. I wonder if I'll be abe to resist the urge
    to find another ISP even though I still have 2 months of my 3 month
    account to go.

    It's just too damn crap to think about - if it isn't the web that's
    slow it's ftp or nntp. I can't remember using such an awful service.

    Your ISP (callplus.net.nz?) is probably shaping traffic.
    Or their upstream provider is.

    That Ginseng and Green Tea soap smells good enough to eat - I'd recommend
    that.

    Lesson: You can't pay bugger all and expect the world.

    I've never had any problems with slingshot, in fact I find them to be
    quicker than some other more expensive ISPs.

    Why don't you use slingshot's news server?

    Well that's true, my experience with xtra was indescribable - no
    amount of my uncouth vocabulary could do them enough justice.

    I wonder what was the longest time any idiot put up with an xtra
    account before seeing the light and finding an ISP that was either
    better or cheaper or both.

    I believe in freedom of expression and there are some nz.general
    posters who don't.

    I should add that eventually after a whinge to slingshot support that
    things have been 'fixed' - sometimes temporarily. With no direct
    response to my 'whinge' email I'm never sure if my fix is due to them
    doing something or if it is accidental. However I still hate 'having
    to' complain to get the service I expect and if they are cheap that is
    their problem, not mine - I still expect service. A bargain aint a
    bargain if it's shit. My previous ISP was actually cheaper and
    although it had it's annoyances I think I might go back to them.
