    I'm thinking of using Usenet from now on I have money to spare and I got banned from most private torrent sites and now I've got to wait hours for a normal tv episode which is kinda lame


    What is the best Usenet thingy the fastest etc. ?
    How much will it cost ?
    Does it work in Europe ?

    That's all for now

    You can get a life time block account from Usenet-News. 100Gb is only about $24 which is about £12 and yes it does work in Europe

    That sounds good but is it really for a life time ?

    Turns out my ISP also uses Usenet and I just followed sinkhead's tutorial and it works [​IMG]

    ISP's dont have the best usenet services, they're acceptable but you gotta buy the best ones.

    I'm in Europe and I use Hitnews.eu. They've never let me down and apart from a couple of occasions have always got max dl speeds. They're pretty cheap as well (fiver a month), plus there's no upper limit although it's only 70 day retention. Usenet-news sounds cheaper (although it does have a better retention rate) but your paying for 100gigs worth of downloads, then once you've hit 100gig you've gotta buy another datablock. I know people who burn through over 100 gig a month easily. If you're not gonna d/l gigs and gigs worth of stuff then Usenet-news is probably a better option, but if you're gonna grab over a hundred gig a month then I'd recommend Hitnews.
