    If I'm downloading using usenext does it add on to my ISP download limit
    or can I download as much as I want without going over that limit
    because with Usenext you get a limit of downloads.

    Personally I would avoid usenext and get almost any other usenet supplier.

    The download limit of your ISP and the download limit of usenext are however different and the ISP will still see the downloads and count it towards the limit.

    Hi monkey04,

    1.) No the bandwidth will still be used as far as your ISP is concerned.

    2.) Avoid usenext at all costs. I've been ripped off from them in the past (ie paid and never recieved my login details) after fighting with support l decided just to split my losses, and go w/out a refund.

    Why is this in Wii discussions?
    This should be posted in computer systems.

    if you want to use usenet I suggest just using the news server your ISP provides

    you dont have to deal with sleezy Eastern European companies and its free with your ISP subscription

    Yes, it will go towards your bandwidth cap, anything you use your net for counts.

    Hardly any ISP's still offer usenet access. Few which do, don't let you have alt.bins which is really what you want or they give you a stupid download limit like 2gb, we all know that won't do.

    Go with giganews if you have to, I hear plenty of good about them, avoid usenext at all costs just like everyone else says.

    Free usenet is still out there. My ISP offers a free usenet server, with binaries access. That news server has a 100GB/month download limit, but that's more than enough for me.

    I've heard good things about Power Usenet, but I don't know anything from personal experience.
