There are several newsreaders, as well as several standalone networking utilities that can show connection speed. Please note the unit of measurement being used. Most programs report access in kilobytes per second. Giganews will always discuss bandwidth in kilobits per second.
Giganews offers limited accounts based on monthly GB access only. Theoretically, you should be able to access Usenet as fast as your Internet connection allows. This is limited most often by network conditions between your computer and Giganews.
