    We are affiliates with PowerUsenet which is a great service with similar
    completion and reliability as GigaNews now with 50 day retention.
    PowerUsenet has unlimited accounts at $14.95 a month along
    with other plans. The refferal link for the site is...

    How many simultaneous IP's does it allow? Looks good if it's four. Looking at sharing an account with some others since my ISP stopped binary newsgroups.

    Might be the same price but NewHosting allows posting and 8 connections (14.95 is only 4 connections, $19 is 8 connections). That, and if you get the yearly plan, NewsHosting gives u a discount.
    blah blah blah... whatever...

    too bad about the 4 connections, i think newshosting advertises 4, but I haven't been held to that in a very long time.

    Almost tempting, I found that newshosting got close to 40 days of retention, but now its gone back down to 36 or 37. Not often I need soemthing older then that, but sometimes there is.
