700 Days of Binary Retention and Counting

Giganews is excited to be the first Usenet provider with 700 days of high-quality binary retention!

When it comes to Usenet service, high-quality binary retention and superior completion rates aren’t features a Usenet provider can have at the snap of a finger. This level of service is no sudden decision; it begins as a conscious decision to build the highest quality Usenet experience possible.

At Giganews, we maintain a history of innovating in order to give you the best possible Usenet experience. From Giganews Accelerator to VyprVPN, we continue to offer new Usenet features as we increase retention. Check out the Giganews timeline below:

Giganews Timeline

Our people
A strong foundation starts with the people behind the service – here at Giganews we’re passionate about Usenet and we’re driven to constantly find new ways to improve the entire Usenet experience. From service and technicians to our network and infrastructure, we do it all as full-time employees on an in-house network. No part of Giganews Usenet service is contracted or outsourced.

Our service
Whether an article is a day old or 700 days old, we created a system we would want to use: service with 100% completeness, availability and unlimited speed. Most Usenet providers lack the infrastructure and in-house technical professionals needed to support long-term, high-quality retention. When they push their system to the limit, it fails and their members experience downtimes, incomplete articles and missing retention. Our system is built from the ground up, and we run it on our own in-house, multi-redundant network of servers.

We’d like to hear from you. Get in the conversation by commenting below.
