This Astraweb special seems to be the best value going in unlimited usenet service right now. Astraweb is not a reseller but one of the few that owns their own server farm. It's not quite Giganews quality or retention but it's only about a third of the price.

If you sign up this weekend, and are not able to get your newsreader set up, or whatever else you might need help with, be warned that your emails to tech support won't get answered until Monday. The fact that no one there works weekends is the only negative thing I can say about Astraweb, but other than the slow email replies, its a very good service.
