Free news?

Anyone know about a usable, free news server that works well in Europe? My ISP (tele2) seems to have screwed up their news server, lots of posts are missing. :(

I don't understand. You mean posts are missing from the WQ3 forum for you or somewhere else? :?:

In a imilar discussion I remembered from a few weeks back, no real free service was suggested. Either it was http://news.google.com or http://news.individual.net/ and both only carry text messages.

With a quick google search (free usenet service) I came across
http://www.newsgroupservers.net/usenet_ ... ervers.htm
especially the bottom list may be worth while. Both my work (university) and ISP servers seem to be non public ;-) ...

My ISP seems to have gotten their act together again, but thanks for the suggestions. :)
