    For you other Clearwire users/suckers out there, I have a question. I know, from experience, that Clearwire throttles most p2p downloads such as torrents. But do they throttle newsgroup downloads? And if so how much and how often? Also, if they do throttle this kind of traffic, do you think using a newsgroup service with a web based UI (ex. http://www.newsreader.com/faq.htm ) would get around the throttling? Just trying to figure out whether or not I should even bother paying for newsgroup service or not. TIA for any help.

    **EDIT** Well, I've been using Newsguy for about a week or so now with no problems besides the usual Clearwire issues (Clearwire blows). Haven't been throttled YET. Been using SSL ports as much as possible. Will update as needed. **EDIT**
