Newshosting ups data retention to 400 days The Usenet provider Newshosting announced this week that they had upped binary retention to 400 days for all their service plans.
The new milestone is "made possible by recently implemented storage capacity upgrades to the Newshosting datacenters worldwide."

The company said they intent to continue building retention, "far above and beyond" 400 days.

Retention, in relation to newsgroups, is the amount of time a posted item remains posted. Newshosting also offers 2 years retention for text newsgroups alongside the 400 for binary.

Too little too late Newshosting. I switched because you saw fit to take orders from a foreign organization and start dropping/censoring groups.

I hope you die a quick death. Usenet will be fine without you.

Newshosting works fine for me and has been for the past few years. I wasn't aware they were dropping or censoring groups, I still seem to be able to get all my stuff I want to get just fine with them.

And point of this news is what? Giganews and Astraweb are already far above 400 days, Astra even with a lower price (11$/month or 96$/year).

Have used all three of these in the past. Now using an unlimited plan with GigInews.com. Giginews has a unique discount program where I pay less each month based on the number of days my account is not used. I don't download every day, so the discount adds up quick.

Giginews.com - $15/pm; Unlimited, 30 Conns, SSL included
Plus, pay less each day you don't use your account.
