Blog NGD Blog said: We’re doing something that we’ve never done before. On August 16, for 24 hours, we’re offering unlimited usenet accounts for just $5.50/month. It’s the best price that we’ve been able to offer for years, and we may never be able to offer it again. The $5.50 rate will be good for the life of your account.

I've been using NewsgroupDirect for about 4 years now. Has never failed me. I like their block accounts, no reoccurring charges, no time limits and they offer substantial discounts thru out the year off their base prices. They also offer discounts for referrals. They make set up a breeze and answer questions without delays.
No, I am not a rep. Look at me, would you hire me? I wouldn't.
On the other hand..... are you willing to listen to the advise of an ape?

For people that want to try it out occasionally, you might consider watching for a block offer. I bought 1 TB for ~$20 during a sale a few years back and still haven't used it all up. Most of the good stuff (copyrighted) gets removed from US servers anyway, so they're of limited use.
