Launch and Free Apple iPad Giveaway launched a new Usenet service yesterday.  To celebrate they are offering 50% discounts on all accounts.  The plans range from 6 GB a month to unlimited access.  All of which include iPhone and web newsreaders.

The FastUsenet service appears comparable to other leading newsgroup vendors.  We haven’t had a chance to test the service.  They offer a demo of the iPhone and web readers online.  While FastUsenet is not offering a free trial you could sign up for the 6 GB account ($3.95) to get a feel for the service.

Along with the 50% discount and iPad / web newsreaders, FastUsenet is giving away an Apple iPad 16GB WiFi edition.  Sign up for service between now and March 1st, 2011 to be automatically entered to win.
