    Hi fellas!

    I would lik to ask this question! Lets say u subscribe to a unlimited downloads/month newsgroups! is it possible for, lik say me and my friend to use it from different ISP but not at the same time?

    That shoudn't be a problem as long as its not the same time. I use Newhosting and I can log on from home and work ( 2 different ips )

    its even better - i share my newshosting account with 2-3 simultaneous IPs...you're not supposed to, but i guess as long as you dont all have maxed out 10mbit lines, you should be ok

    from the above replies it seems that the newshosting allows that right?
    what other servers allow but still has good retention as well gd speeds?
