Could anyone tell me if now that there are "build your own broadband" packages on PN,will there be an option to get back full newsgroup access like we used to have?

Hi there,

Do you mean us offering binaries again? If so there are no current plans to reintroduce this.

We do not carry binary newsgroups, these have not been reintroduced and there are no plans to do so.
You can still use external binary groups but we do not carry any on our newsgroup servers.

I think its miss leading to say Peer-to-Peer/Binary USENET on the specs for that service then if you dont host Binaries.

We don't host P2P either Cheesy

These are applications and protocols that can be used on our packages. The star rating system shows how this type of traffic will work with certain packages.

Although we don't host any binaries they can still be used.

Interesting point though...

Would "File sharing applications and Sites" be a better phrase do you think?
