Default Why are my newsgroups downloading so slow?

See topic. I am on a 768/128 cable modem that has been downloading around 190KB/s from HTTP sites, I have set up my newgroups and I am only getting 30KB/s (when I was downloading the lists from the groups I was getting around 120KB/s). I am on Charter Pipeline (cable) and using GrabIt. Please help me.
Any suggestions will help.
Please keep in mind that I am downloading 40KB/s worth in Direct Connect while doing this (and still getting the 120KB/s for lists)!
