Announcing 1000 Days Retention & Prize Giveaway Winners!

Today, Giganews became the first Usenet provider to ever store 1000 days of binary newsgroups retention – and we will continue to grow our retention over the coming months. Giganews customers have over nine petabytes of redundant storage at their fingertips, and every day, we add more space.

It’s one thing to offer long retention. It’s another thing to offer high-quality long retention. Some competitors claim to have long retention, but when you look closer, you see the long retention is only in some groups, older articles are slower, and many older files are incomplete.

We built our infrastructure from the ground up with a focus on scalability. That’s why, when you pull a 1000 day old article, it downloads just as fast as one posted today. You’ll find the same quality and length of retention across all 109,000+ newsgroups, not just a select number of groups.

To celebrate this milestone, we created the 1000 Days Prize Giveaway. All members were automatically entered into the giveaway. Members could earn additional entries by "Liking" us on Facebook, "Following" us on Twitter, using Mimo Usenet Browser + Search or being selected in the Top 10 Salutes.

Today, we wrapped up the contest and are excited to announce the winners.

Remember, by having an active Giganews account you were automatically entered into the giveaway, so you may have won even if you did nothing.

See if you’ve won now, and thank you to every Giganews customer for participating!
