Several leading Usenet providers passed 1,350 days of binary retention last week. Services including UseNetServer, Newshosting, NewsDemon, Astraweb, ThunderNews, NewsgroupDiret, Giganews and more are still increasing retention on a daily basis. Bringing them within around 100 days of the four year mark. Today we’d like to join in celebrating their latest achievement and look forward to the continued growth of Usenet.
Binary retention is always a popular factor that users consider when comparing newsgroup providers. Usenet fans that have been around for years understand just how far the industry has come. In years past the gap was at times wide but now several popular services have pushed the envelope and continue to grow retention each and every day. Bringing factors like price, add-on features, speed, reliability and support into the spotlight.
For around $10 a month (or $8 a month paid yearly) you can enjoy the benefit of high retention, speed and reliability offered by leading newsgroup services. Along with free add-on features like Usenet clients, search engines, online storage and personal VPN access. See our Usenet packages section for more details.
