Re: How can I access newsgroups?

The vast majority of Plusnet have never heard of Usenet.

I assume you have a newsreader program?

Plusnet provide a basic news server at - but its only got text-only newsgroups (and spam).

You would need to subscribe to a paid server if you want binary newsgroups.
