Alternatives to NDO for Binary Newsgroups?

I've been with NDO for 2years and can't fault them. They've given me 100% connectivity on a 24/7 link. Amazing (or lucky).
Anyway - they seem to have stopped the binary newsgroups, a feature that I want.
Has anyone else had a look round for a new reliable ISP for similar money that offers decent binary newsgroups? Nildram have cropped up so far. Any others?

Cheers

Hi,
I have read on the NDO forums that there news group feed is from plusnet of whom have stopped feeding the binaries for some reason.
This is not the fault of NDO.

It might pay to see if there are news servers available from other sources that may allow you to stay with you isp.

regards Ian.

Hi

Thanks for the response.

Yes I heard that too. But if I sign up to giganews or whoever AND still have to pay NDO it starts to work out expensive. I need the newsgroups to come from the ISP itself.

Cheers

very few isp's still do binaries due to the costs of carrying the feeds. if your that despirate for them take a giganews subscription...

i wouldnt base my isp choice purely around who supplies a binary feed.

If you want a cheap solution try newshosting.com if you want the best solution as already mentioned go with giganews...

Unlimited on newshosting is around 8 quid a month I think, its generally best to avoid isp newsfeeds. If I were you I'd google for unofficial newzbin forums and have a look at the threads about service providers in there.
