I'm looking to move from BT (British Tel rather than torrent) and the only thing I would miss is the Usenet (well SABnzbd wouldn't be so useful).
What recommendations do you have? I'm interested in price (£), retention (if under a year), what download speed you get and completions of uploads. I don't upload (although was thinking of doing the R-Pi distribution). Would a Block or Monthly be better? The best one I've seen so far is newsdemon.
To show the low level of expectation, the BT included Usenet plan is very basic, only 3 connections, each connection giving about 63 kbps download. Retention is about 145 days for binaries. However, completeness is really high.
Currently I download about 30GB per month, mainly from binary groups but this can vary.
Thanks for any help and advice.
