    I really wonder WHY people hate Giganews so much?

    People are mostly looking at the price I guess. Giganews cost more than others but for me it's about quality anyway so I'll stay with them.

    Hey Multiforce. Is there any benefit to having two news servers?

    I use Usenetserver. I'm getting less than optimal speeds, averaging 600-1000 KBps. My connection's max. is 1.6MBps. Will a different server change this?

    There shouldn't be any need for 2 news servers as you should max out your connection with the one you use.

    Try setting up the number of connections, if no luck try

    tracert "input your news server address here" on a command line and see where you get a spike/high ping.

    Try other ports too (if they allow other ports).

    Just wait for UsenetServer to complete phase 3 and get 101 days of retention.

    Of course, GigaNews is much more reliable than Newshosting. There are two different servers (locate in Europe and the United States, therefore they can serve large number of customers)
    GigaNews is not only have better retention than any other Usenet servers but also it's completion.
    Occasionally I get incompleted files from cheap Usenet servers and I can't even fix them with all recovery pars files I have, so I borrow my friend his GigaNews in order to fix them
    If GigaNews's price reduced just a little bit, this would kill all other competitors.
    I think GigaNews is still cheap for it's truly outstanding quality service.
