are they reliable?
#2
this is a decent deal - hows it better than astraweb though?

I pay $10 a month for astraweb which works out at £7.63 - not sure how $9.99 will work out to £6.70?

Is that because I'm paying by CC or something?

Astraweb has longer retention but not as many connections from what I can see - so I guess it depends what you value more.
#3
Astraweb is only $1 more but offers an extra 180 days retention which IMO is worth the extra $1
#4
There's also these guys

http://www.newsgroupreviews.com/usenetserver-review.html

not sure how good they are though, $95 for the year sounds good

I only pay $10 per month for astraweb, in fact if you go to Astraweb.com it says its still $10 a month for unlimited

the $95 deals sounds good, just risky though if they went crap or bust

Still decent like.

According to someone on AVFORUMS supernews use Giganews backbone, so they might be a bit more reliable than astraweb maybe, although astraweb are pretty good

I pay $11 to Astraweb for the unlimited download. There are other packages available though that may be less with limits on them.

My last bill (29th March) was $11 or £7.75 if this helps anyone.

It's a way of downloading files. Do you know what torrenting is? You tend to download the same files, but using USENET maxes out your internet speed all the time whereas torrents sometimes don't.

Have a read here for some more infomation - http://gizmodo.com/5343260/how-to-kick-your-torrent-addiction-with-usenet

Software/movie/music piracy - basically - servers which provide relatively untraceable fast binary downloads.

Cue people defending their right to said materials around about....... now!
#16
thanks guys

i used to do a bit of torrenting back in the day

not done any for years though

so basically this is a way of torrenting stuff which hopefully doesn't include any viruses etc with faster (i'm assuming) downloads etc

but most importantly its less traceable

HD stuff baby!!! fast as f**k with no seeding.

USENET incorporates 256-BIT SSL encryption so that, unlike torrenting, your ISP can't see what you're downloaded. Not only the encryption, but USENET also downloads your files at the maximum speed your internet connection can download. Because of these, people are willing to pay a small fee.

Interesting.

"If you want to know more, have a read here: http://gizmodo.com/5343260/how-to-ki...on-with-usenet"

Cheers for that, it almost makes a little sense to me now! :D

One question: Are these things tied up into a yearly contract or could I cancel whenever I wanted?

I'm pretty sure you an cancel whenever you like - certainly you can with Astraweb but check before signing-up ofc.

I'm also going to say "SABNZBD" and nothing else - it's all you need to know :)
