Airnews Mach I is an ideal plan for those new to USENET. Light to moderate USENET users should also find this plan to be an excellent value.
What do these numbers mean?
Our servers transfer information to your computer up to the maximum speed of your chosen plan. This maximum speed is divided evenly between your active connections actually doing article transfers. This division is recomputed every few minutes.
In all cases, your actual speed may be limited by the capacity and quality of the Internet between you and our systems.
Airnews speeds are stated in Kbps (thousands of bits) or Mbps (millions of bits) per second. These are the same units of measurement used to describe most Internet connection speeds.
To convert bits-per-second to bytes-per-second you just divide the number of bits-per-second by eight.
This is the maximum number of simultaneous connections that our servers will allow you to use at one time. Software used to browse newsgroups often will use more than one connection at a time.
* Maximum speed per connection.
