    Anyone having problems with news.virginmedia.com today? Seems
    extremely slow.

    Got rid of it ages ago as I kept being reported.
    Eternal-september has been 99.999999% spot on for me. Figure was estimated.

    Yes - it's slow today. Normally it's very good.

    Comically slow here in Knaresborough still at this time. Subscribed via
    news.individual.net and it's instantaneous.

    Yes, I normally use Eternal September which is also lightning fast,
    but it went down a few months ago and their web site was also off line
    so one does to assume the worst and I moved back to VM. I reinstated
    ES today and had forgotten just how fast it is.

    Couldn't do without by daily dose of Bill Wright could I?

    Of course!

    There used to be a text newsserver somewhere at VM/ntl but suspect it's been
    discontinued a long time. As I have renewed my NIN subscription for two years
    and only read text groups anyway I shall resubscribe to those that were on VM
    via NIN and be done with it.

    It's back to usual - a problem with Highwinds, the provider. It
    affected other services too.
