This is getting to be a bit silly! ThunderNews becomes the sixth provider to reach 1000 days binary retention in the month of May. Amazing. This now means most of the top tier usenet providers have all reached 1000 days binary retention: Giganews, Newshosting, Easynews, Astraweb, UsenetServer, and now, Thundernews.
Our experts at VPNandUsenetReviews are forecasting this retention war to continue in two forms: first, the top tier providers will continue increasing binary retention day for day until their storage space cap is met, and second, the retention increases will slowly filter down to the economy and lower tier providers. In any case, it’s shaping up to be a great summer for usenet!
From the Thundernews press release: ThunderNews.com has reached a new benchmark in USENET by incrementing binary retention to 1000 days. Still growing day by day, the increase to 1000 days in retention is available to all members of ThunderNews.com.
All new and existing members of ThunderNews.com will automatically have access to this increased retention without any increase in price or changes to their newsreader configuration.
Binary retention rate is the length of time that a binary or text file is available to subscribers. 1000 days of binary retention means that subscribers can access binary files that were posted to Usenet newsgroups over 1000 days ago.
With another increase to 1000 days of retention and still going as well as expanded plan benefits, ThunderNews.com continues to be a leading, premier Usenet newsgroup provider of choice.
Congratulations to Thundernews!
