Usenet Passes 3,000 Days of Binary Retention

Leading Usenet providers are celebrating a new milestone.  As Newshosting, UseNetServer, Easynews, Eweka, NewsDemon, ThunderNews, Astraweb and more pass 3,000 days of binary retention.  We join in celebrating the accomplishment as they continue to innovate and bring quality service to Usenet fans.  When NGR launched we discussed retention in terms of days.  It’s hard to believe that services now support over right years of binaries and growing.  Leading providers continue to set themselves apart with efforts like these.

Those of us who regularly enjoy Usenet now have access to over eight years of binary newsgroup posts.  At 3,000 days you can access newsgroup posts from more than eight years ago.  As 3,000 days ago was August of 2008.  Back then the highest retention to be found was 240 days, which is around 8 months.  Now we can all explore 100 months of Usenet posts for a fraction of the 2008 price of newsgroup access.

The quality and value offered by Usenet providers has also progressed since 2008.  Back then services offered unlimited Usenet for $20-$30 a month.  Fast forward to 2016 and the price is half that much.  Not only has the cost dropped significantly.  Users now enjoy free extras.  Including faster speeds and additional features like newsreaders, Usenet search and VPN access.  All for under $10 a month.

We look forward to celebrating for years to come as providers continue to grow retention.  Leading providers will have pass nine years in just a few months.  As always continue enjoying the best Usenet has to offer.  Visit Newsgroup Reviews to learn more about Usenet.
