Astraweb have been doing their block accounts for a while but the biggest was 180GB, until now.
they now have 1TB block account for a bargainous $50 or roughly £31.
now this wont be good for all you heavy downloaders, but for light to average users, this could last a few years.
these don not expire until you use up the data allowance, much like a PAYG phone.

Now back on, plus there's $20/3month deal for heavier users

Been using them for a while with the 180GB package and seems to be a good service.

The 180GB package is $25, so getting 1000GB (roughly) for only $50 is indeed 'bargainous'!

Not sure what the other usenet providers are offering these, but difficult to compare as not all packages are truly the same.

nice deal, im on the unlimited for $11 but for a one off payment for lower users this is great

Could explain what Astra Web is rather than make us all google.

Okay so they charge to allow you to download pirate software. Bit like upload, no doubt will be shut down soon. The FBI are getting heavy on any site that's not trying hard enough.

US sites maybe but most newsgroup servers are based in Russia etc

NGD one happens roughly every 4 weeks for the same price and i use it, but Astraweb are not so strict with the DMCA takedowns, so will be a better deal.

NGD member for 255 days and have used 167.9 GB of the 1100 GB allowed, be a while before i buy again

I'm paying £6.31 unlimited everything on NewsDemon, but I gather astraweb also does unlimited everything
I cancelled my Newsdemon account, and went onto Astra.....only they've stopped doing Paypal.
Why ? Wasted my time, then.

Couple of questions please:
1. Can you use this without getting throttled?
2. Can anyone suggest good windows software to use with it?

I think paypal along with other payment services were told to stop dealing with dodgy websites (wikileaks) or face a fine. Hence the anonymous attacks on them.

Anyone have a problem with Astra for missing articles?

Contemplating using this as a backup server.

smashing deal, had no problems with incomplete articles, seems a good buy with all the traditional file sharing sites going cautious or shutting down.

1 . no you wont get throttled by astraweb on most of the plans (maybe by your intenet provider)
2. sabnzbd is a fantastic free newsreader

Yes I meant throttled by ISP, or is there a way around it if they do?

No point if already using AW as main provider.
Blocknews or other would be better.

Sabnzb is probably a bit much for a noob (no offence scorcher) altbinz is one of the easier ones to set up.
