Question by deepak2000: How to access UseNet on Comcast?
I am new to Comcast and UseNet both. Want to know how can I access UseNet? Are there any free news servers?
Answer by Tobias
I’m not entirely sure but as far as I know Comcast is only a provider for internet, not for usenet. The easiest way I know to gain access to the usenet is www.usenext.com. The have pretty easy software and as long as you cancel within the trial period you won’t have to pay for it.

Question by χρησμοί: Why does comcast suck so badly?
So get this,
I’m in the Saint Paul area and I sign up for the new 50mbps tier that’s been splattered all over the news recently (the wide-band $ 150 per month one.) So the “tech” comes in and after about 20 minutes of diagnosing my connection and seeing that I was getting ~13,000kbps on a speed test, he finally concluded by saying “oh that’s about average/normal.”
Determined to show my perseverance, I pull out my secret weapon – a Usenet client and I begin to download the newest Ubuntu distro with 5 concurrent connections. I kindly explain to the “tech” that I should be consuming well over 50mbps with this current setup. He calls the office again – this time speaks to *another* “tech” and now confirms that he should have brought a special modem that is capable of the higher speeds. (Regardless of whether my current modem is already DOCSIS 3 compatible.)
He is now heading back for the main office and is delayed 4 hours. So yeah, suck much?
