[Newsgroups] What services provide the best deal for block purch

I was unable to pay the monthly and wasn't using it enough, I had Astraweb. I don't download much anyways, but I need a block account or whatever it's called (where you buy a certain amount of download rather than a monthly fee). Who do you guys recommend. Mostly for books and software and forum discussion.

You can try Blocknews or one of the Highwinds Resellers like thecubenet.com or newsgroupdirect.com for good deals on block accounts.

I have block accounts with Astraweb & newsgroupdirect. Both have worked out okay for me. AW seems to have stuff posted longer if a DMCA request hits. NGD does have periodic sales so you can get a block cheaper (Terabyte Tuesdays, etc.)

AW shows these blocks:

25 GB - $10
180 GB - $25
1000 GB - $50

NGD has sales such as : It’s the same great deal that you’re accustomed to, 1 TB of the best usenet available for just $38 (the regular price is $100). You can sign up for email notice of their specials. Their regular prices are somewhat higher but the sales make it competitive.

Like I said, both have worked fine for me.

Yah, I got my block from NewsGroupDirect/highwinds for $40.. I believe when they sell you a 1 Tb it's actually 1.1 Tb 100 Gb free bonus or something

Black Friday / Cyber Monday is just a few weeks away. You'll likely find some great block deals around that time as well.

Blocknews is also one.

TheCubeNet has good prices, offering 250gb for what the others offer 200gb for however there was an old thread about account issues

I never thought of BF as something for services like this. Think there are also sales on pre-paid annuals, etc? I don't think block is right for me, but I'm always up for a deal

Not that old, only 9 days. Talks about being cancelled and no good reasons given.
