Thread: Best Block Account Plan?

  1. #1
    I'm a moderate Usenet user and feel getting a unlimited account would be a waste of money for my usage so currently I'm looking at block accounts. The only 2 I could really find that suit my needs are..

    Usenet-News $32 / 100 gigs / 71 day retention for binaries

    Astraweb $25 / 90 gigs / 25 day retention for binaries

    I was wondering if there were other Usenet providers offering similar deals and if any one has any experience with Usenet-News and Astraweb?

    Any information would be much appreciated, thanks.

    Think PowerUsenet has the best price and service on block accounts.

    PowerUsenet does not offer non-expiring block accounts; no Giganews reseller does. PowerUsenet only has unlimited and monthly rate plans.

    RealitY, thanks for the suggestion but a monthly rate plan isn't really what I'm looking for. Mesaman pretty much hit it on the head what I had in mind.

    Snakebite, I didn't even see that plan listed on their site. Also read a lot of mixed reviews on UseNext. Thanks for the suggestion tho.

    I'm going to look around for another day or two but if I can't find anything comparable to the 2 plans I'll probably go with Usenet-News because of longer retention.

    I use Giganews unlim and pay 25$ a month and downloading an average of 400GB per month. Much better

    no u see the unlimited acounts that cots more are great for poepl that dl heaps, but i only use block account cause my isp only allows me to dl 20 gigs a month. Now i have astraweb and unsenet-news, so i pay say 25 for astraweb which with giganews last me like 1 month, but astraweb last me like 4 months, so much better deal for me than to pay more and not use the capacity.
    Also out of the two i find astraweb dls much faster with usenet-news i get 600KBps with astraweb i get 1.3MBps
