    what are the main differences between them ?


    also , do any of 'em have a demo server so i can test how good they are ?! , cuz i'm curious to know how much stuff they release ( new + old ) , and how fast do they release the new stuff ( is it faster than the bittorrent community) ?


    any help to lead me to the right way would be appreciated guys.

    you can test them by just paying for 1 month.


    it doesnt matter which one you choose all groups and files on the servers are the same.
    you should read how usenet works. its not those companies who put the warez/movies on usenet.


    NewsHosting is cheaper (10 USD a month for unlimted account)

    Giganews -> 50 days retention
    NewsHosting -> 45 days retention

    Are there any newsgroup providers that have trial periods?

    Some like YottanNews have trials at 1gb and capped at under 100K which is rather useless and Ive fond their retention seems crap also. I suggest you check out NewsHosting as its almost half the price of GigaNews and really no difference.If you do make sure to use our refferal banner at the top of this page...

    You could always check out their websites (especially as you allready know the address ) and I am sure you will see the bit about a free 3 day trial at giganews.

    Don't know about newshosting as I don't use them... But I figured you could probably look into that part

    I have had a good experience (service etc.) with giganews for more then a year and have not switched to the lower priced newshosting because of that.

    EDIT: Keep forgetting the referal service bit. Try newshosting (after the 3 day giganews trial )

    Newshosting has some pretty screwy prices... look at this
    [Limited] Cost
    10G/month $10
    25G/month $20
    50G/month $30
    60G/6mo $50
    150G/6mo $100
    300G/6mo $150

    [Unlimited] Cost
    Monthly $14.95
    6mo $83.70
    12mo $155.40

    So an unlimited monthly subscription costs $15 a month, but a limited (50G) month-long subscription costs $30.

    You can take every GB with you every month so if you do not download that much your better off with a monthly subscription.
