wanadoo and usenet

  [DELETED] 16:45 19 Mar 2006

Having struggled for two days to put right my newsgroup software, I find that my ISP, Wanadoo, have pulled the plug on Usenet without prior warning. As I'm not only looking for a new and courteour provider, but also for a usenet provider, are there any special recommendations from this forum?

I would recommend PlusNet.

Plusnet used to be ok but after changing their t&c constantly , lots of user's ( me included ) left to go elsewhere.
Check out their forums click here

Im with Tesco net now with no complaints at all.
Usenet is ok with maybe a smaller range of ng's but no probs with retention and connections, all for the sum of £19.99 pm unlimited uptp 2meg service.

Thank you. News Parrot looks a useful guide that I'll check out on Monday morning. Also, Agent have a newsreader service for $2.95 a month, first three months free, so I'm looking into this too.
