Thread: Which usenet provider?

  1. #1
    Which Usenet provider do you recommend?

    It looked like Giganews is the most used, but I'm just guessing. Do they log downloads? Why would SSL be good to have?

    Giganews seems kinda pricey...any other services with better pricing?

    Thanks

    They don't log what you download but how much.

    SSL is good if you have an ISP that is not giving you full speed at the usual ports, or if you think your grandma is watching you.

    I tried Newsdemon and Newshosting last year but I didn't get good enough speed so I didn't cancel my Giganews account. I'm sure there are others here who have different stories.

    They cost more than others but $30 isn't exactly a big amount for 200 (soon 240) days retention, very good support and no downtime (been a customer for 3 years).

    Nice topic.

    Giganews, while pricey, is the best choice. Giganews has 240 days of retention, while the next best usenet provider has only 120 days. I have had Giganews for over 6 months and have nothing but good things to say about them. When I registered, I also got NewsLeecher (which, in my opinion, is the best and only news reader for me.)

    They do not log download either.

    SSL is also good to have because no one can see what you are downloading () and more importantly you can download at better speeds from certain ports.

    If for some reason you decide not to get Giganews (which is perfectly understandable, it is a little on the pricey side), I recommend these providers.

    PowerUseNet -- http://www.powerusenet.com/
    UseNetServer -- http://www.usenetnewsserver.com/
    NewsDemon -- http://www.newsdemon.com/

    I've used PowerUseNet and they were good, not quite as good as Giganews though.

    Hope that helped.

    I think Astraweb is worth looking into.
    They have 138+days(http://www.news.astraweb.com/tools/stats.html) retention and costs $11.
    $11 = http://www.news.astraweb.com/specials/kleverig-11.html

    After Giga Astraweb is the best, imho. I've been using it for just over 2months and am very satisfied with speeds.

    They offer the standard:
    20 SSL connections.
    Unlimited Data Transfers.
    Monthly payments, can be made via Paypal.

    NOTE: Astraweb have changed their payment system and use "multicard" now, which apparently has a bad reputation. So I cant vouch for Astraweb anymore.

    That is a great price, very very tempting.
