    Unsure

    Im looking for servers that let you buy block accounts, can anyone please post the ones they know?

    I've got astraweb, octanews, blocknews, megabitz and usenet-news (highwinds reseller) so far.

    As far as I know the best and cheapest option is..

    http://usenet-news.net/

    One hundred day retention, although I sometimes get incompletes in the big groups after 50 days.

    I currently use both usenet-news and astraweb. I think Astraweb is superior in both completion and retention.

    If you've an astraweb block account for unlimited posting, is there a need to change? You can continue posting and never d/l, it doesn't get turned off.

    www.news4u2.com is currently selling a 100 gig block "special" for only 20 bucks. That's the best price I've seen anywhere. I don't know anything about their service though. It appears to be the same company as Newsdome, which just closed down it's site and redirected visitors to news4u2.

    To celebrate our 10th year of providing Usenet access we are offering you a super deal the chance to purchase a 100 Gig block of Usenet access for the low price of $19.95

    a block account means you don't lose access to the servers until you use the full 100 Gigs it doesn't matter how long it takes to use it.
    But for block accounts, you can't go wrong with either Astraweb or Usenet-news.net

    I use mega-bitz.net's 25GB-Package for 8.95 USD and am quite satisfied w/ it.
    ~110d retention and very high completion rate. Can't think of any failed
    downloads and i've been using that account since ~1.5 yrs.

    EDIT: btw, I also used usenet-news before.
