No, I can't lobby.
The problem is that it seems that INN comes with that limit by default, if you
don't edit the Makefile or compile time config it builds with that limit. So
my ISP could have compiled it or took one already compiled without even
knowing about this.
There's no way I can convince them to change anything, and I'm forced to stay
with this ISP because I live in an area where it's the only one to offfer
"local call" access (in Italy we pay phone calls very much).
Other "public" newservers are slow and don't carry all the it.* newsgroups.
