Well they certainly don't promote the fact on Virgin and BT that they
have Newsgroups servers. Virgin have reasonable servers (I get full
speed pretty much all the time on them) but they only have a 1 week
retention on binary groups and BT use a larger provider (can't remember
off the top of my head) but they offer up to about 70 days retention but
limited to 3 connections which gives me about 150K/sec.
Still it saves me a tenner a month on what I was paying to Thundernews.
