- At least some - if not all - of the listed servers do not work anymore.
The Shaw website gives no results when searching for "usenet", "news groups", "newsgroups", "news server" etc.
A phonecall to Shaw pointed me to "news.shawcable.net" and that works for me.
On a side note, the Shaw support person was not at all familiar with newsgroups and told me, I was the first person ever to call about this.
