Slyck's Guide To The Usenet Newsgroups
Premium News Servers
Choosing a good premium news server is perhaps the most important decision you'll make as you venture into the newsgroups. Some servers are downright cheap, some are even free. But like all things in life, you get what you pay for. Pay too little and you'll be disappointed in the server's performance. Downloads might be slow, and worse yet, files might be incomplete. Cheap newsgroup access is a sure way to lead to disappointment.

By spending a bit more, you'll ensure that two very important features are of optimal quality: speed and retention. The newsgroups are only as fast and complete as the servers you pay for. By charging a bit more, newsgroup companies invest in high capacity servers and fast internet connections to ensure that the files you want are complete and are delivered quickly. While most news server companies out there are very reliable and professional, many shady companies still exist. Our list of recommended servers consists of newsgroup providers that are ALL KNOWN to deliver reliable and professional results.

Red Orb News is a unique place for the newsgroups. If you're looking for something cheap, you can sign up for their ultra low price 3 gig deal for $1.99/month.

Excellent choice for new comers and old school users.

SSL & 20 connections comes with ALL plans.
