Topic Wiki

Best offer available right now is $50 for internet & phone for 6 months, afterwards bumped up to $60/month.
Standalone internet service isn't cheaper. You can try calling retention to extend your promotional rate, though recently DDFers have been unsuccessful.

The best available promo for Optimum internet (only), is the $40/month for 12 months for new customers.
Many people reported success in retaining the $40/month plan (after 12 months) after calling Optimum to cancel.

The old promo for internet was $30, but that has been replaced with the $40 plan around May 2013.
As of now, it isn't coming back, even with persistent HUCA, but users have had success upgrading to a higher speed plan for $45/month

TPB doesn't block these torrents?

Sure they can block them from uploading individually, but what stops them from downloading the torrent and then seeding it back to everyone else?

Are you currently using usenet? Is it only good for recent/popular stuff or can you find obscure content as well? Any usenet provider you can recommend?

FYI, my notice was triggered by an inquiry from Media Sentry.

Yup, been using it since I got my second notices a few years back... It's best for the new popular stuff, but you can also find alot of old stuff. The problem that used to be was that most providers only offered low retention for the cheap plans... These days they offer 500+ days on the plans, and if I can't find that occasional item then I'll use a torrent for it. :)

Not sure how useful you'll find this but I find it very good. Filestube, it indexes the web for links to rapidshare etc...

I'm just getting into it... found a free Usenet service (through some promo) and just set up sabnzbd. What do you do for content?

Cool. XS Usenet?

If I am searching for something not recent or not tv/movie I use NZBIndex but primarily I use NZBs.org.
