Reccomend any Binary newsgroups servers with decent access times from southern England?
On Sun, 27 Jul 2003 21:08:25 +0100, Mike Barnard
I used to be with giganews, but that was a few years ago. Before I
sign back up with them, has there been any improvement in binary
servers in the UK or Europe? Who do you reccomend?
Having recently signed up to Giganews migration from Newsfeeds, who
for what they provide are simply too expensive), I can vouch for
Giganews 100% so far.
A server that lets you download but only count for 50% of what you
downloaded (against your monthly allowance), seemingly unlimited
number of simultaneous connections, impossible to max out the
connection (I've tried upto and including an 8MB ADSL connection and I
was still hitting my ADSL limitation before any limitation at
Giganews), and 6gb a month for about £5 - Bargain !
Tracerote is a little on the long side, but then 90% is made of hops
all around the country thanks to BTO (my packets are well travelled),
but doesnt make much difference at the end of the day.
Giganews have a few servers now (not sure if they did back in days of
old), positioned as east, west and central US.
