Giganews Gets 90 Day Binary Retention

Really wasn’t expecting this, but I’ll take it. Giganews, a premium usenet provider, is increasing their retention on binary newsgroups from 70 days to 90 days. Here’s part of the announcement from the Giganews website:

Giganews, Inc. announced today a storage increase for single and multi-part binary newsgroups. Over the next few weeks retention in these newsgroups will start to grow to an unprecedented 90 days. Giganews’ current binary newsgroup retention of 70 days will increase day by day as the additional storage starts to fill with new articles.

Giganews has to be one of the first, if not the first company to provide binary retention greater than 70 days. 90 day binary retention is pretty much unheard of. Lots of usenet providers don’t even have 90 day text retention. That’s why Giganews is the best though. Currently, their retention for text newsgroups is around 1,150 days.

So, if you’re looking for or are interested in a premium usenet service, I’d suggest Giganews. I’ve been a customer of theirs for a little over one year now. The service has been totally transparent for me, it works all the time and I always max out my downstream bandwidth. 🙂


Well, now what?
