So, I finally got my DSL up and running, but realized I no longer have access to my old news
server (ATT). I remember someone mentioning http://news.cis.dfn.de/ as a good ns, which I've
emailed already.

Anyone have any other suggestions because SBC's news service blows?

I've been using newsguy for $5.95 a month. Works great.

http://www.newsguy.com

my cable modem service came with a giganews account but I can't get to it from work.

I think you're on the right track. It's what I use and it's cheaper than NewsGuy. No **** groups,
but if you can accept that it's a fine service.

Same here; I've been using them for awhile. I'd never checked to see whether the **** groups were
there, though. ;-)

I've had an account there since 1998. I won't pay for a news server.

I got Qwest DSL in February and their news server is at least as bad if not worse than Prodigy's. At
the moment, I'm downloading a DivX movie (Rabbit Proof Fence) through a dozen free or open news
servers simultaneously; my DSL line is max'd out at 75KB/s. Some of the free news servers I list
towards the bottom of http://www.nyx.net/~bkraft/

hehehe...nice one BB!

Thanks for the tips (all of you), but news.cis.dfn.de hooked me up in under 48 hrs and the service
seems to be at least as good as I had....excellent! I'll keep Newsguy on file for future reference
should I did it.
