All news servers use Port 119
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.
I think that newsgroup downloads / access do now count towards the overall bandwidth cap... This may require some investigation / testing.
