When I was 7 or 8 years old the suspense of waiting until Christmas to see what Santa, (mom and dad,) had brought to me would kill me. I would search endlessly, and when I found one, peel the tape oh so carefully, always placing the gift back in just the exact spot it came from…
That’s what it’s like now, waiting on the various Usenet providers to announce their deals for the holidays. But not all the providers have been so outgoing with their announcements, yet, some have.
Here’s a list of the ten best providers and the Cyber-Monday and Black Friday deals I have found so far, (or not,):
- Newshosting – It’s just $5 p/mo if you buy an annual subscription.
- Giganews – Use the link and get a Platinum account for a low $15!
- Easynews – From Fri. Nov. 29 til Dec. 2 it’s a penny a Gig that is to be used in the 30 day period.
- UsenetServer – Through the end of the month, you can get the first month for $5 and then the usual $10 fee.
- NewsDemon – No announcement yet, but usually make a great showing for Black Friday.
- Thundernews – Also no announcements yet, but they have a reputation for offering deep discounts at the last minute.
- Eweka – If you buy 10 months you will get the last 2 to the year for free.
- Newsleecher – They have a cool newsreader, but no announcement as of yet..I am waiting patiently.
- Ngroups – Also a no show, but they always do make a special offer on Cyber-Monday.
- Astraweb – Also a late comer for the holiday announcements, but in the past they have made late offerings.
