    I have read somewhere that Blueyonder provides a free Newsgroup service for their 10Mb line customers.

    Currently I have been using Newshosting and find it great... But I have some financial worries at the moment and would like to cancel it.

    Where can I get more information about Blueyonder Newsgroup?

    Will they have issue in regards to the amount of download usage. I don't want to exceed their limits.


    Thanks in advance

    Configure your usenet software to connect to news.blueyonder.co.uk
    You don't need to use a username and password to download. I can't remember whether you need to use them for uploading though.

    Thanks for the help

    what is the retention like?

    Should I presume that everything is exactly the same as NewsHosting, apart from the retention...

    How many Connections (bots) do they allow? Newshosting allow 8.

    Will I still be able to max out my connection?

    thanks again

    They carry a lot of groups for an ISP, although nowhere near the number that premuim services such as NewsHosting do.

    Retention is only about 3-4 days but completion had been excellent for the many years I had used their service. What's better is that there's no cap so you can just leave your usenet software running.

    I imagine you'll likely max it out for most of the time - especially with a multiconnecting program such as NewsBin Pro.
