TheCubeNet is a re-seller for UNS so if you are using UNS or another re-seller of UNS avoid them as your block filler.

If you don't know who your current provider is, you can check here: http://www.ngprovider.com/current-usenet-map.php

I have a block account with Astraweb. It appears Astra and UNS are not the same. Would Cube be a good block filler for Astra then?

Thanks!

Astraweb is a different back end, so Cubenet is a good compliment for fills.

That's not good. Guess I'll be skipping this as a backup for Astra. Thanks for the info.

thanks - FWIW to those wondering why it may still be missing blocks even if you're using a different provider, it comes down to the luck that whichever portion of blocks were removed for copyright reasons are different between the two providers you choose. It can often be different, but no guarantee.

The 200GB block deal link is bad on their homepage.
Correct link is: https://www.thecubenet.com/client...php?pid=44
