We recently became the first Usenet provider in the world to provide 900 days of newsgroups retention and we haven’t stopped growing our retention. Today, we currently provide 957 days retention. While some might try to match our retention, no Usenet provider matches our speed or reliability.
As the worldwide leader in Usenet retention over the past decade, we remain dedicated to supporting the NNTP protocol and providing the best service possible to our customers.
On May 2nd, we will become the first Usenet provider to store 1000 days of binary Usenet retention. To celebrate this milestone, we are pleased to announce the Giganews 1000 Days Prize Giveaway. Enter the Prize Giveaway to be eligible to win the following prizes:
- iPad 2
- Xbox 360
- Twenty five (25) Giganews T-shirts
All existing Giganews customers are automatically entered into the 1000 Days Prize Giveaway based upon their account level and length of Giganews membership. Diamond customers receive two entries for each month of Diamond membership. Non-Diamond customers receive one entry per month of membership. For example, if you have been a Diamond for 5 years, you will automatically receive 120 entries. No entry required!
Non-Diamond members can automatically double their number of entries by upgrading to Diamond before we hit 1000 days of retention. If non-Diamond customers upgrade to Diamond on or before March 31st, you can also lock-in the $29.99 Diamond price.
Earn additional entries by following the instructions on the 1000 Days Prize Giveaway page.
When we hit 1000 days of newsgroups retention, we will draw names for the prizes and announce the winners on our blog. So check back here on May 2nd to see if you’ve won!
