Unhappy Pipex news server

sponsored links
Has anyone successfully downloaded files from the various binary newsgroups on the Pipex news server?
I find that 99% of the files are broken.
Could someone suggest a reasonably priced news service provider in the UK?

[url][/url] @ 99.99/year for unlimited download, as if you downloading binary, 40GB/month will get used up within days.

Most ISP dont really carry binarys that well, simple reason being, each day, almost 200+ GB of traffics fly through a news server, and to hold that amount for 2 or more days, need a lot of storage space and not many ISP are willing to do that as at the end of the day, their goal is to provide you with internet access, basic newsgroups only, binary newsgroups is just a bonus.

The best I have seen and used is Easynet, but I dont think they cater for the home users as all their accounts are for business only and carrys a business price tag to match.
