Direcway/DirecPC no longer provides included newsgroup access, but Earthlink provides very good newsgroup selections for free to their customers. You can also purchase subscription newsgroup services from many providers that will work fine with your satellite connection,such as Easynews or Newsguy, or simply use Google's free newsgroups for simple,web-based reading and posting.

- Hey there,
When you have a moment we were hoping you would consider adding our Usenet info website (http://www.newsadmin.com.com) to your FAQ. The site has grown over the past few years and includes interesting Usenet stats, as well as a popular newsgroup provider comparison area. Thanks for your consideration!
