Thread: Good free Usenet servers?

  1. #1
    Hi,
    I've been using freebin.readnews.com But it seems to be down a lot...
    What are some good free servers?

    Your ISP might have one available and not tell you about it.

    I think even if people know they will not post it. I personally do not know any 'free' newsservers. There probably are some, but as soon as they get posted a lot of newbs rush on it with 20 connections or so and then the server will be down in no time. People are keeping it more to themselves nowadays....

    Thank the newbs for that.

    Pretty much if you relly want to use usenet, your going to have to pay for a subscription.

    My ISP offers service, but it is pretty shoddy, 8gb a month, 2 connections.

    Check out your ISP... otherwise, you can waste your time for a while looking for a free one, but i suspect it will be just that... a waste of time.

    open your newsreader paste this> news.ipv6.eweka.nl,choose 8 connections and thats it.i tried that server before 2 months and it was ok(only the retention was low~100days and many corrupted files but not bad for free)
