i personally use usenetbucket as my primary unlimited and newshosting as my backfill block account. My account on usenet bucket only costs a few pounds a month on the basic plan. Managed to get a discount so extended for a year for £20 all in.
astraweb went from being one of the best providers to one of the worst sadly. been using ssl news for over a year now and rarely have failed downloads
maybe be helpfull for someone :)
Tweaknews another recent Highwinds/UNS/Base Net acquisition
Does anyone know if you can sign up to the free trial first and then take this offer if it is suitable?

Can't see any reason why not , You could just use a different user name
i have used newshosting for years paying $14.95 a month ( £113 a year ) (without VPN ) I also have a 20 Gig block account with Tweaknews to pick up any "missing pieces
Saw this deal ,So signed up with new user name and saved around £50 pounds a year with free VPN
Very happy :p

deal no longer available, its up to $99
If you don't need the huge 1900 odd days retention then frugal are worth a look at $40 for the year, 300 days retention:
Why not get it for free, like the other 7 people** who use it?

**I'm not including the millions of spammers and trolls, of course. Just people.
hmm, thats actually not bad

Let me explain, You dont get long retention with ur ISP Virgin gives 10 days I beleive

"Text posts: zen. (120 days), uk. (90 days), alt. (21 days), All other groups (40 days)"

OK not 1034 days but OK for most people who are not using it for binary feeds. Distributing binaries was not the purpose of usenet and led to it being canned by many providers.
Binary newsgroupsWhile newsgroups were not created with the intention of distributing binary files, they have proven to be quite effective for this. Because of the way they work, a file uploaded once will be spread and can then be downloaded by an unlimited number of users. More useful is that every user is drawing on the bandwidth of his or her own news server. This means that unlike P2P technology, the user's download speed is under his or her own control, as opposed to under the willingness of other people to share files. In fact, this is another benefit of newsgroups: it is usually not expected that users share. If every user makes uploads then the servers would be flooded; thus it is acceptable and often encouraged for users to just leech.

There were originally a number of obstacles to the transmission of binary files over Usenet. First, Usenet was designed with the transmission of text in mind. Consequently, for a long period of time, it was impossible to send binary data as it was. So, a workaround, Uuencode (and later on Base64 and yEnc), was developed which mapped the binary data from the files to be transmitted (e.g. sound or video files) to text characters which would survive transmission over Usenet. At the receiver's end, the data needed to be decoded by the user's news client. Additionally, there was a limit on the size of individual posts such that large files could not be sent as single posts. To get around this, Newsreaders were developed which were able to split long files into several posts. Intelligent newsreaders at the other end could then automatically group such split files into single files, allowing the user to easily retrieve the file. These advances have meant that Usenet is used to send and receive many terabytes of files per day.

There are two main issues that pose problems for transmitting binary files over newsgroups. The first is completion rates and the other is retention rates. The business of premium news servers is generated primarily on their ability to offer superior completion and retention rates, as well as their ability to offer very fast connections to users. Completion rates are significant when users wish to download large files that are split into pieces; if any one piece is missing, it is impossible to successfully download and reassemble the desired file. To work around the problem, a redundancy scheme known as PAR is commonly used.
A number of websites exist for the purpose of keeping an index of the files posted to binary newsgroups.
Let me explain, You dont get long retention with ur ISP Virgin gives 10 days I beleive, Here you get 1034 days, You will not find all usenet groups with your ISP barely any! You get all the groups here. With your ISP you DO NOT get ssl encryption here you do. And if you are comparing this to your ISP's own usenet you realy don't know what you are talking about!

You mean you don't get it free as part of your ISP's service? If not, it isn't really an ISP is it?
I stand corrected!
