I'm on PAYG. What speed should I expect to see from usenet.plus.net? Are there any rate limits applied to this server?

Yes there are rate limits. I think it's presently set to 4 x 150kbps threads.

That matches what BNR was showing, maximum of four connections (5th asked for login credentials), just under 20kBps per connection.

When the binaries get blocked, will the rate limit be raised? Downloading a list of articles on a newly subscribed group is very slow and most readers I think only use a single connection to read it even if you have more configured.

I gather the list of RIN IP ranges you sent me is now redundant and access is now blocked from there.
