PowerUsenet is a high quality, economically priced news service. Their $14.95USD Unlimited Access plan is competitive with the other unlimited news services but is much more reliable in my experience.

A few stats:

- High reliability
- 40 days binary retention
- Supports alternate ports
- Unlimited and metered accounts

You can get more info or signup here

Giganews reseller according to
It appears that their reseller accounts are on the same servers as Giganews direct, but they have less retention and prevent uploads.

...which would explain their lower price and Dex's reference to "economically priced".

Usenet Provider Giganews : Resellers are Surfino, Orangeusenet, Cheapnewsgroups, Rhinonewsgroups, Powerusenet, Infinityusenet, UsenetGiant, FastUsenet.

Funny how all the resellers have exactly the same plans and same prices with no posting. Even all their websites are almost the same design :)

I guess that's what you're paying for - their ability to keep their machines running and not oversell their reseller's bandwidth.
