If you haven’t yet, check with your ISP. Comcast and I would expect most others provide you with Usenet access, calling it news server or newsgroups. They don’t really go out of their way to make it known, I suspect because most people don’t care about it and it is not simple to use which would probably cause support problems. My Comcast service uses Giganews with an included monthly usage limit, but can pay for upgrade from Giganews.
Here is a list of other usenet servicers:

NNTP Server?

Question by ghowriter: NNTP Server?
I want to set up an NNTP server on my intranet that will do the following:

1.) Allow ONLY people on my intranet subscribe to and download from any newsgroup we can get available…

2.) Sync with other free news servers to keep my group list up to date…

3.) run on Windows Server 2003… (I will not install any Linux server as I am unfamiliar with Linux and have to inclination to learn it, if you can’t offer a Windows solution, don’t post…)

4.) does NOT involve buying MS Exchange…

If you have a possible solution that fits the criteria, please let me hear it…

I have installed the NNTP service that comes with IIS on Server03, but it only allows for local newsgroups thus my users would not have access to usenet which defeats the entire purpose of installing the software…
