Usenet - what groups does plusnet carry

Just out of curiousity...........

Is it all just text or do we have any binarys? Would i be better to go elsewhere (i should think yes will be the answer)

Usenet - what groups does plusnet carry

The better question is probably which groups we don't carry! There will be the odd news servers that we don't carry, but you can make a request via our ticketing system for these.

Having said that, we'll shortly be outsourcing our text usenet services to Supernews.

so does that mean we carry all the binary groups. Is there a list of groups we carry anywhere? For example, would we carry the same groups as, say, giganews or tigerusenet?

Sorry, my mistake. We carry pretty much every text group known to man, but we don't carry binary groups. You would need to gain those from third party suppliers.

Apologies for reading your post too quickly!

Yep, binary Usenet was withdrawn about a year ago (April 2006?)
