    There are not that many around or people would use those instead.That is why they have paid servers.

    The only other one I know of is

    http://www.yottanews.com:8080/freeaccount.php

    Bur read the fine print first....

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I create several free accounts?


    It will not do you any good. We limit by IP.


    I just created a free account how do I use it?


    Do a google search on how to use usenet newsgroups.


    I have a free account can I get posting rights?


    No. Due to abuse we will not allow free users to post. We have several very economical premium packages that will allow you to post.


    What speeds should I expect?


    Free users are capped at 16KB/second. Paying users are capped at 1Mbits/second X 8 channels (8mbit/sec).


    How many connections can I open?


    Free accounts have a limit of 1.
    Pay accounts have a limit of 8.


    To me, they suck even with a PAID account, but anyway, they are free...though capping a newsgroup account at 16KB a sec.is not worth it to me. But it IS free....

    m8ey check out the easynews nl site. I think you will find it worth it.

    http://www.easynews.nl/

    ps mine still works

    Could I also suggest paying for a server is worth while. If like me you hate those monthly contracts I use a pay server for fills. Block accounts are available from. Retention 80 days at least.

    That means the cheapest option is 300 gigs for $90 that works out at 30 cents per Gig. If you also use the free servers then I mean it is peanuts. Those 300 gigs do not run out at the end of the month whether it takes you one month or 10 years to use they only run out after the 300 gig has been used up. Well it works for me on average I use about 30-50 gig on usenet and so far have only used 12 gig of my premium service in two months so "wheyyy hey man" Peanuts.

    Hmmm... I thought all newsgroups were free. Which ones cost money?

    Newsgroups themselves are free....you can find them in some ISP's...though most suck.....but it is premium server access like Giganews and newshosting that have longer retention, that is what you pay for.

    I pay for my access to a news server too, buddy. I was referring to newsgroups, not news servers.
