View Full Version : 150GB Block account or a Unlimited account?

10-31-2011, 05:30 AM
I got a quick question for everyone here,

I found a highwinds reseller with a 150GB block account for $12 here,

or should I keep my unlimited account with newsdemon.

I currently pay about $10 for my Usenet account a month and can't figure out how to measure how much I use!

Any way to find out how much I currently download a month?

Highwinds reseller, most people will tel you to avoid it.

The guy who runs that site was spamming another forum with a $6.99 deal, he got his thread trashed and then he took down the code.

grab yourself a nice astraweb account....there are $11 monthly and yearly $96 deals floating around (google is your friend)

Yes it is highwinds but even worse than that is the guy is a wanker based on his forum posts. Some people with fat pipesshould sign up and let them run full bore for awhile to show him what's up. Lol

If you think you want a block account go with blocknews. They got a calculator if yu have an idea of what you use each mmonth. it lays out the costs.

astraweb also have block account.....they don't expire untill they are used up.

you can use a client like alt.binz to monitor the usage as it counts the ammount you use. not to mention that in astrawebs account settings it also lets you know how much you have left as well.

i got someone started on a astraweb block account (after he thought he was not going to use it that much) he ended up using the whole lot within a month.....now has a monthly subs with them.

$96 Yearly is affiliate link I know, but I can't find the special without one. http://www.news.astraweb.com/specials/voucher.cgi?t=h43vom3sb75ppj5
