if they do, I doubt it will be more than a couple of days,
most UK ISP's who provide binaries struggle to keep either
of those groups at decent levels. My advice, is to subscribe
to a premium newsserver, such as Easynews, Giganews, or even
PAYG on Astraweb.

Yes to both those groups via Plusnet. Not sure what you mean re contention
rate for those binaries. Sorry

Steven.

I`m currently with NDO and using Astraweb for NG`s was just looking at

Perhaps a p2p app would be of more use... check out bittorrent

platform - not more that 48 hours but once the new usenet
platform is live we are aiming to have 7 day retention on binaries and
30 on text.


Cheers Josh,

Roughly what time scale are we looking at? I understand the Beta newserver
went down rather quick :0(
