Thanks for the introduction! :) I just want to clarify one thing and that is there is no US server available with this new service at this time, perhaps in the future though. Users have still seen good speeds across the world though.

Since it doesn't say on the site clearly and most people will miss it:

accounts are set at a maximum of 40 MBits per second per account.


Though to be honest I wouldn't sign up anyway, the site is poorly designed and it's most probably another highwinds reseller, the retention is very similar. Not to mention usenetnow.net is just blocknews.net under a different name. Why they would need 2 sites I have no idea.

Got to admit Highwinds is a very poor excuse for a usenet provider, Newshosting and UNS included. I had a 3 month account with Blocknews this summer and it is highwinds but they do a much better job I had no problems with Blocknews, except like all highwinds they just cannot get SSL right. Their response time was prompt and helpful, when I asked to cancel, I received a nice note and within minutes 2CO.com their credit card processor sent me a notice of cancelation. No fuss and no more charges. Wish I could speak as well of some of the many providers I have used in the past. Usenetnow is not a highwinds reseller, it is Xentech from The Netherlands, same provider as Xennews and I believe Hitnews, both are good. For now I will stay will Powerusenet or Astraweb, too cheap for Giganews!

Hi, this service is not a Highwinds system at all. Completely different datacenter and equipment to say the least. Something we can call more our own and have a bit more control over. Retention is a fair bit higher than Highwinds also, but Highwinds is right behind with there current increases. Although we are understating retention a bit on Usenetnow..many groups are seeing around 190-200 days, With a different service and system, we felt there should be, well, a different website. :D
