  1. I hope this in the right forum, i couldn't find anywhere else to put it:

    Does anyone here know of a good Newsgroup server thats reliable, and preferably in the UK? (for speed, as im in England, UK). I don't mind paying a small price per month either.

    It must have "alt.biniaries" too.

    Following on from that, what Newsgroup Software do you use, and do you think its any good, as im on the lookout for one.

    Any links would be useful....
    Cheers...

    I use ClaraNews, and have no problems with them...
    Though when I ordered my account, there wasn't any download limitations...

    But as the price is quite low, and the download quantity high, I don't have any problem recommending them...

    There have been none server problems in the 6 months that I've used the service either....

    Another news provider which seems to be good is EasyNews.... Some friends of mine use it, and they've found it to be, as the name implies, very easy :) It is webbased afaik, which eliminates any need for a newsgroup program...


    Personally I use GrabIt, as it suits most of my needs... (Even though it doesn't support posting messages... :-/)

    .02$

    Hope this helps :)
