Seems very good deal but
35 GB/month of high speed downloading
600 GB/month of flat rate downloading
600 GB/month total download volume
Free newsreader service
Premium support
Flat rate downloading speed: Up to 2 Mbit/s

Does it mean first 35GB is high speed and 565GB is only up to 2 Mbits/s??

Interesting. Not many reviews, most very dated (and funny), but hard to get to the nuts & bolts of the problem(s) anyone was experiencing, other than they wanted to cancel during trial. But why...

Dumb question.. other then illegal downloads of things what is the point of newsgroups nowadays? If you are determined to illegal download something why would you use newsgroups over something like torrents which limits "after the fact" modifications to files?

Ahhh, yes. There it is.

On the flip coin, wonder if this one of many dutch providers that dont comply with automated takedown notices. If that's the case, most probably using as backup anyway.

Anyway, way too many complaining (despite mostly seemingly baseless) about them across the webs to make determination.

Doesn't say retention. I smell scammer. Probably they will close shop in a year or 100 days retention.

Retention is 2386, according to their website. 100 wouldn't be a deal breaker tho.

Probably works. Most of the complaints seem one off. Like people that don't want recurring fees, maybe don't even know how usenet works.
