Default BT Internet dropping USENET

BT Internet have announced they are dropping USENET.

They have an offer for Giganews but it looks over 40 USD a year, what
alternatives are there? Never had to think about paying for the service
previously.

Individual.net

Excellent reliable service, very good spam filtering (unless some idiot
replies to a spam message in group rolls eyes )

A massive 10 Euros per year, or about 8 quid,

Presumably with the loss of the bt. groups, as they don't appear to be
listed by eternal-september ?

Ok, BT's input to these groups has been non-existent for some time now,
but the peer support was quite useful.

Would probably make more sense to ask in the bt.* groups you're interested
in, where the peers will be moving to?

news.btopenworld.com only lists 13 binaries, so are you just looking for
text usenet?

Just sent in my comments to BT - and switched all my newsgroups to
eternal-september. They know what they can do with BTSport when they
start charging for that too. That's when I will be off on principle. I
have no complaints about the service but I won't be treated with such
contempt by any f****** supplier

I thought it was blocked by numerous ISPs because of its
troll friendly policies. 40% of all internet users
are abused by internet trolls. Companies that run sites like
eternal-september stinks because they won't deal with
anything that looks like internet abuse posted by one
of their customers. So their posts get blocked by ISPs.
