When a news client requests information from a news server, be it headers or articles, a session or connection is opened. Therefore, the more connections that you have open, the faster your Usenet experience will be. Most news clients allow you to open up several connections.

Make sure your Usenet Provider allows multiple simultaneous connections.
Be careful though, opening up too many connections can slow your computer to a crawl. Play around with the connection settings in your news client to get a feel for the number of connections you’re opening and the load they’re placing on your computer and Internet connection.
