    With a premium provider, speed is only limited by your connection. Providers use multi-gigabit dedicated lines to deliver downloads to you at blazing speeds. It would be a rare day that you couldn't max out your connection.

    There is plenty of rare stuff up, I would venture to say way more than with torrents. The downside of the rare stuff is that it really isn't in high demand, that's why it's rare. This doesn't effect speed or availability. But, instead of using NZB files you'll have to download headers and search the content out for yourself.


    The biggest plus to Usenet is that it's the safest way to get your material. It's been around since 1985, zero users sued for downloading.
    All together, if you can spare the cash, there is no better way to go.

    Giganews is quality but there are cheaper ones like usenetserver (https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/newsg...tserver-112911) and they are also good.

    You can use sites like www.binsearch.info and www.newzleech.com to search for stuff.

    Its a bit easier then nzb's since you dont have to go to a site, search, dl the nzb and import it. In my opinion it only adds some luxury, you dont really need it.

    newsgroups are way much faster than torrent. If you have a good provider (newshosting for my part) you can download things for about 80 days at almost lightspeed (up to 25 Mbits/s)

    How do newsgroups compare to Oink for lossless music?
