Usenet Celebrates Two Years of Binary Retention

Usenet celebrates an exciting milestone today as Giganews passes two years of binary retention.  Quite an accomplishment considering five years ago 50 days was the best around and we were very happy to have it.

Astraweb is also nearing at 720 days of binary retention.  Other Usenet providers including NewsDemon and UseNetServer are well over a year and a half of binaries.

Giganews also offers 2,600+ days of text retention.  That’s over seven years of text posts.  If you need to find some old school newsgroup posts try Google Groups.

Keep an eye on our Usenet provider section for daily retention updates.
