Need to find a News Server?

Most Internet Service Providers provide access to Usenet newsgroups as part of their service.

As a service to the Usenet community, we have scoured the Internet to develop a list of news server addresses provided by as many ISPs as we could find. We cannot guarantee the information is always up-to-date, and we welcome any updates you may find.

While ISP-provided news servers are ok for getting starting with Newsbin, there are premium Usenet News Services that provide much more content and higher reliability.
