I've been using Supernews for over 2 years now. Excellent, 1000 day retention, and only $11.99/mo!

Thanks! I'll make the switch at the end of his billing cycle.

Giganews all the way.
Amazing retention, excellent up-time and brutal speed, even over SSL.
I max out my downstream capacity easily when using SSL (100 Mbit).

Used to have EasyNews, but Giganews stomps all over that service on all aspects, so I jumped ship a month after Giganews opened.
Prices are great also [in my opinion] and they have servers both in the US and in my home geo (europe). Thus it's "eco friendly" as well, no wasteful hogging of the over crowded transatlantic cables :)

I've been using easynews for years now. I love that it has the web interface so that if out someplace without a full setup (at a friends, or such), I can still get content without needing to install anything on their system. They are insanely expensive compared to these other options though (I pay $30/mo!). Does anyone know of any cheaper alternatives that would still have the convenience of a web interface? Thanks!

I vote Easynews. But I have been a member for a long time and I have gigs of RollOver Gigs. I like them mostly for their WebInterface. I have used Usenet readers in the past and they take forever to search and index. Easynews has an AutoUnArchive feature so you can just download the video file or preview it.

Astraweb for me. The retention and unlimited use (20 connection limit atm with ssl) seems solid. Astraweb I don't have to specify EU or US (option is there though) and I can reap all the benefits.

I use UsenetServer myself, no problems yet and downloads max out my connection speed (40Mbps) 90% of the time.

Anyone know of a good EU-only provider (either unlimited or block accounts) that accepts credit cards through something other than Paypal? (I guess that's actually pretty specific, but I'm hoping there's at least one provider out there that matches that profile.)

I've tried to find something myself and through various list sites, but I haven't found something that is exactly that. Everything either only accepts Paypal or doesn't accept credit cards or has US and EU servers (which means all their servers are vulnerable to DMCA take downs.)

Currently I'm using Giganews with a Blocknews block account for back-up, but I'd like to branch out to something outside the U.S.
