Default Is Supernews good for Usenet newsgroup provider?

sponsored links

 
I am going to get cable internet and they offer newsgroups provided by Supernews, supposedly according to Customer Support, I have unlimited amount of downloads and full access to the binaries.
So, has onyone used this before, and is Supernews a good Usenet provider?
Thanks
I'll mainly be getting PS2 and S/VCD, BTW.

I have charter cable and their newsgroup are through supernews. The retention is good on most binaries but charter only allows two connections and limits your speed to 32k

Supernews retention is poor compared to some of the other premium news servers. This was admitted to me by the supernews tech support guy in one of the news groups. I use Giganews which I have found to be very good.
