Giganews newsgroups provide the fastest, most reliable Usenet experience on the planet. Their news servers offer the highest quality newsgroup retention and completeness available.

Giganews has been setting the industry standard in Usenet service for a long, long time.  They are consistently raising the bar by which other Usenet providers are measured.  This is especially true of binary retention.  Currently Giganews has the highest retention of all Usenet providers.  This is pretty insane when you consider it is over 1200 days!  That’s more than 3 years of binary retention!

Although they are not necessarily the cheapest Usenet provider, they do offer the best value.  Giganews accomplishes this by providing a quality product, with loads of additional features and benefits.  All customers receive the Giganews Accelerator to help speed up and compress their downloads.  Customers in the top tiers also receive VyprVPN (VPN service, $15/mo value) and MIMO (Newsreader/Search).

Redesigned Giganews Control Panel Includes VyprVPN and Dump Truck!

In addition to a top notch free newsreader and personal VPN service, Giganews also includes free online storage using Dump Truck.  Customers wanting to take advantage of the great bundle should look at the Diamond plan.  Although it is a bit more pricey, the service is really an amazing package when you consider that it includes: Unlimited Usenet, Unlimited VPN (desktop and mobile), and Free Online Storage.  Both VyprVPN and Dump Truck are 100% mobile ready with applications for Android/iOS.  Customers shopping for usenet that are also interested in VPN and online storage would do well to compare the Diamond plan with the price of separate offerings from other providers.

    I’ve used Giganews for years. Along the way, I’ve tried lower cost providers and always gone back to Giganews. Speed and complete retention are always top notch with Giganews.

    The way I look at it Sunday brunch easily costs as much as a month of Giganews. Giganews gives me a lot more pleasure than brunch and it lasts a lot longer.

    I have been using Giganews for over a year now. I subscribe to their top tier package. It’s a little expensive bit its worth it. I am very happy with the speeds, but mostly the retention. They are always at the top for that. I recommend Giga because they know their stuff.

    I’m all about the Giganews. It’s basically the cadillac of usenet providers – they give you everything. Speed, ssl, newsreader, vpn, and they are working on online storage now too. The plans cost a little bit more but they are totally worth it if you get the top of the line package. Once I subscribed, I couldn’t go back to anything else.

    5 days until Giganews hits 1000 days retention! I’ve been with Giganews for probably 3 years…maybe more. They have never let me down, and this new retention is going to make them even better. Go go Giganews! It’s too bad you don’t have more than 5 stars for retention!!

    Giganews salute! A Diamond in the Digital World! This is the best usenet subscription service available. It has been a part of my internet life for as long as I’ve had a broadband connection. I can’t imagine not having a Giganews subscription. Keep up the amazing work! I also want to say that VyprVPN has been a life saver when traveling. Sometimes it’s been the only way I could get online at some funky WiFi sites. Definitely makes the diamond plan worth it, and then some. Thanks for all the extras! 5 stars!

    The Giganews service is by FAR the most reliable, most effective, and with out a doubt the fastest service around. The other companies just trytheir best to copy Giganews. I have been a customer for many years now and that will never change as long as their service remains this consistent and evolutionary. They have done amazing things over the last few years by including more extras and improving their service. My hat goes off to you, Giganews! All I can say is thank you and I consider it a privilege to send you money each month. Five Stars!

    Giganews is the best usenet provider, hands down, no question.

    -Maximum Speed
    -Up to 50 Lines
    -Highest Rentention
    -High Quality Service
    -High Quality Support/24hours/365Day

    I am using this giganews usenet service now for over 4 Years, there’s nothing to complain about the entire time. I don’t think I’ll ever switch to another provider, and I always reccomend Giganews usenet to my friends. The price is a little high, but I agree with your editors – you get a lot of extras, especially the VPN. And that more than makes up for the cost of the diamond package.

    giganews always impresses. have been with them for years and wouldn’t think of leaving. peace of mind, reliability, speeds, completion and tons of other stuff (that i sometimes don’t need). i haven’t played around with the new online storage but i do use vpn and that works well. probably the most expensive usenet but well worth it imho.

    I have been using Giganews for over 4 years. Came here looking for some coupons, but didn’t find any! They can be a little expensive, especially if you add it up over a year, but you get a lot for what you pay for. I just started using the online storage and the vpn, so I sorta consider that part of my subscription…still I wish it was cheaper! Great usenet service tho.

    editors note: sorry to hear about the coupons/discounts! we are actually working on reviving some of special deals for 2012, so please check again soon!

    Upgraded from the basic plan to the diamond plan a few months ago. Much better retention and love the vpn too. Came here to see if there was any discount for the diamond loosk like I’ll have to reregister lol. Speeds are max everytime and I love that the most. 5 stars for sure there.

    been rocking giganews for many years now. All my friends typically use block accounts now but I’ve stuck with Giganews since I’ve had it for so long and now I’ve got a bunch of stuff in the dumptruck portion too 😀 That’s great for the private sharing now too…excellent like rapidshare
