    I live in the UK and I use NTL 1MB Broadband. I am trying to use Usenet but NTL's usenet adress is not on the site anymore (removed due to a site update or summit ) dus anyone have the adress?

    ntl's server will be useless as they recently removed all newsgroups todo with dvd, movies, tv and music. my friend informed me of this as he uses ntl and now has to pay for a newshosting service.

    It isnt that bad, sure it isnt as good as a commercial news provider but then its free. I get all my movies this way and it does me fine. Its worth trying to see if it works for you.

    Yep its news.cable.ntlworld.com

    Well I've just started taking advantage of NTL's newsgroups, and although I have only been downing music with it, I am more than happy with it, maxs out out my 2MB connection.

    Is it right that you have to use the server that your IP provides or can you use other IPs newsgroup servers?

    errm actually the ntl newsgroups are spot on, I'm downloading games and films from it constantly.

    I'm using news.ntlworld.com - will news.cable.ntlworld.com have any different stuff on there?

    Does anyone know whether it's better or worse?

    Thanks.
