OT news sevice

I've used News Individual Net (NIN) for years but have often had problems with their payment service, Pick and Save. I don't use Paypal.
Can anyone suggest another good Usenet news service?
TIA

Sorry, that should be Click and Buy.

Teranews is also free and they carry better <bigger files> binaries , though there is a US$3.95 setup fee . They do have the occasional outage , so I keep e-s active as a backup .

I like NIN but Click and Buy is a pain in the ass. Their technique of making small charges, in the dollar range, to verify a credit card, means every year I have to deal with MasterCard to explain the odd European charges. I really wish I could just put 15 euros in an envelope and mail it to them.
I've been using them for years after I realized a nntp server half way around the world did a lot better job than my ISP 8 miles away.

teranews is terrible. aside from the occassional outages, they have terrible to no customer service. BTW, for me, they've been unavailable for over a week and even their level2 customer service email bounces.
I just bought a non-expiring 2TB block for $60 from newsgroupdirect.com

On your say-so, I went to their site. They offer a week's free trial, but I could not find a way to order it.

I find tera's services acceptable for the price . Can't bitch much about free ... and as I said , I keep e-s active as a backup for those occasional outages . You must have been subscribed to one of their for-pay plans ... which I considered , not only tera but several others . I decided that the free service meets my needs , and the price is right so ...

I have their free service. I was willing to put up with the occassional glitch, but when their help email bounces, I'm pretty much at my limit.
