Thread: Decent newsgroup

  1. #1
    Was reading around here, as this I am pretty new here and pretty new to newsgroups. I was wondering if there were any decent free news groups at all? Any feedback is welcome.

    decent free newsgroups dont really exist because it costs a lot of money to run it. However, some ISP do provide free newsgroup access. But, dont expect much. You can check if you ISP offers it here: http://docs.newzbin.com/Usenet:ISP_Providers

    Also, every so often a "premium" server will over free beta testing. One that is currently doing that is easynews.nl. The retention is only about a week or two.
    Server: news.easynews.nl
    Username: beta@easynews.nl
    Password: beta

    Honestly, ur best bet is to go get a paid server. UsenetServer is $13/month so its not too bad. That, and the retention is 90 days.

    EDIT: If you dont download too much, you can get pay per gig instead of pay per month.
    http://news.astraweb.com/ and http://www.usenet-news.net/ are basically the only two usenet servers that still offer pay per gig.
