Giganews Retention Grows to Historic 1,400 Days

Today, Giganews reaches an historic milestone and is the first Usenet provider in the world to offer 1,400 days of high quality Usenet retention! That is over 10 petabytes, or 10 million gigabytes of data. We are not stopping at 1,400 days and will continue to grow Usenet retention every day. You will find the same speed and article completion across every day of retention across all 110,000 newsgroups.

How is Giganews able to deliver the fastest speeds and most complete retention?
  • We Built the Software. Unlike most Usenet providers who use third-party software, Giganews writes 100% of its server software. Writing our own server code allows us to continually optimize our Usenet servers for speed.
  • We Operate our Own Network. We connect to multiple Tier-1 network providers and the largest ISPs in the world. By operating and managing our own network, we find the shortest, quickest path to you.
  • We Own and Deploy Servers Worldwide. While most providers run only one or two servers, Giganews deploys Usenet server clusters in Europe, North America, and Asia. No matter where you are in the world, our Usenet servers are close to you to ensure low latency and fast speeds.
