Giganews Reaches 1,500 Days of Usenet Retention!

We reached another Usenet milestone today! We are the first Usenet provider in the world to offer 1,500 days of binary Usenet retention. This translates to over 4 years of binary retention and over 8.5 years of text retention. Don’t worry - we aren’t stopping at 1,500 days and will continue to grow Usenet retention everyday.

Unlike other Usenet providers, we deliver the same speed and article completion across every day of Usenet retention across all 110,000 newsgroups. Our high quality newsgroup retention is a testament to the strength of our redundant infrastructure and our team's dedication to the Giganews service and its members.

We would also like to thank all of the Giganews members that have supported us over the years. We would not be able to grow our Usenet retention without you! Thank you for your support.

We continue to provide more than Usenet service. Over the past two years, we have worked hard to deliver an impressive set of additional software and services to complement our Usenet service, including:

VyprVPN Personal VPN
Dump Truck Online Storage
Mimo Usenet Browser + Search

We also recently launched the Giganews Control Panel App for iOS and Android. The Giganews Control Panel App allows members to manage their account usage, disconnect VyprVPN connections and stay informed on Giganews updates on their iPhone, iPad or Android device.

We have more exciting services and tools coming to Giganews this fall, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy our world leading Usenet retention.
