said by imtim83:Highwinds probably made the change and are now offering unlimited as a means to increase profits from Easynews. With all the cheap unlimited options available now, Easynew's old business model probably needed updating to make it more competitive in todays market. Easynews's big draw is it's browser based access to binaries. Users still pay a premium for that. This is all opinion and speculation on my part of course. said by Stem Bolt:
I personally think the recent changes with Supernews is a sign that Giganews is feeling the pinch from it's less expensive competitors. It's Giganews's way of competing with their less expensive rivals while trying to maintain their "Premium" usenet brand name.
It was bound to happen sooner or later!
I wonder if Easynews was too and that is why they offer unlimited monthly accounts now ?
