    Hi, I just found out about newsgroups despite having various broadband connections since 1997 (doh...).

    What's your honest opinion on the best newsgroup?
    I saw this site called newzbin which was only 2 a month whereas the others were quite a bit more. Is this a good option? I will follow affiliate links if it is an HONEST and biased opinion, thanks.

    Do not pay to get NZB's as they won't give you access to Newsgroups. Pay 7 a month for Newshosting (http://www.newshosting.com/?a=51500) and get your NZB's from here and www.nzbzone.com (For the next week or so there is a limiter but that will be lifted soon).

    Ok, but how about this site: http://www.news.astraweb.com/plans.html
    Someone else gave it to me. It seems to be cheaper. I probably download around 30-40 gigs a month. I have a 2mb connection. So I'm looking at an unlimited package.

    "Unlimited DSL $15/Month Unlimited Unlimited 4"

    Newshosting has an unlimited package but it's only 24 days (if that's what retention means, I don't really know)

    Is there any difference on the two sites?

    retention means how long the files are availible on the servers before they are deleted id reccomend eitehr newshosting.com or www.newsdemon.com newsdemon is 17.99 but with 55 days retention.

    Yeah but I'm not going to be downloading over 40gb this month as im going away, but after that I want the option for a good unlimited package.
    Anyway, I tried my first downloads last night and it's amazing. full speeds and I could find what i wanted within seconds. crazy. ill never use anything else.
