Thread: Giganews vs Usenetserver

  1. #1
    I'm currently a Giganews user, and am considering making a switch to Usenetserver because it's much cheaper.

    However, I noticed a big difference in the number of groups carried by each provider.

    Giganews claims they provide access to over 110 000 newsgroups. The true count I got after updating my list was 106 343 newsgroups.

    However, Usenetserver says they carry over 68 000 groups.

    Judging by the numbers only, it does seem a significative difference.

    But is it ? I'm asking you. Anyone lost access to a favorite newsgroup by going from Giganews to Usenetserver ?

    Ive been using usenetserver and I dont have any missing groups. They carry all the well-known groups. I think the ones that arnt included are the small groups that you probably will never visit. Usenetserver is indeed cheaper and I definetly recommend it. If you want, you can try the $3 for 3 days and see if they have all the groups that you use. If they are missing a favorite group of yours, you can always email them and see if you can start listing it.

    That is why I am sticking with Giganews.....people on here can say what they want.

    I don't care....I get great service and speed from Giganews and that is all I care about.

    A usenet provider, just like Usenetserver and all the others.

    You can sign up for a trial account on Giganews if you want. It's max 1GB but at least you can try before you buy
