Super slow download speeds 10MB/s (from 60MB/s)

My downloads went from 60MB/s to 10MB/s and I'm not sure why. I've reset my modem/router, still slow download. If I check the 'Status and interface options' info, it shows my bandwidth at 10.9 MB/s (87.2 Mbps) but if I do a speedtest on my modem, I'm getting the full 500 Mbps

No other downloads have been affected, I download at full speed using Newsbin, it's just with Sab

Having an issue with downloading speeds, I was getting up to 80/90 min/s now 20 or less mb/s , I checked my speed test and everything was fine, optimized my computer and now my streaming speeds have doubled but my downloads are still down which means it has to be sab somehow, any help would be great ,

So hardware and Internet speed are good.

Possible other causes:
* newsserver plan
* ISP throttling newsserver traffic. Try a VPN
* virus scanner

and the Big Cause of slower downloads:
* the newsserver with the first prio does not have the articles requested

Based off what u said I tried changing the priorities from the servers… i originally had “newshosting” 1st then “usenetservers” then “eweka” now I have “usenetserver” 1st the “newshosting” last… and after 1 download it seem a bit faster definitely a far cry from what it was originally… can it be my server plan for “newshosting”?

If they're all unlimited then try to give them all the same priority. Have you tried varying the number of connections for each server?
