Re: What usenet service everyone using now?

I still use the free usenet service. In over a decade of using binary newsgroups I've never paid for access, and I never will.

Well it depends on how you use it and what your needs are. If you get what you want quickly when it gets posted then you don't need a paid service. However if you find yourself searching and getting stuff that was posted months ago then you definitely need to get paid access. Long retention rarely comes free.

~24 months retention is sufficient for me.
