Ok, I have seen my fair share of newsgroup questions from how to download multi binary parts to what newsserver to use. I've been using Usenet for about 4 months...when I got my Verizon DSL account. Well, I am about to move back to California and from what I know, the DSL ISP there has a newsserver but carries very limited binary groups. What I am wondering is the "mainstream" newsservers (i.e. NewsGuy) how does the monthly service function? They only explain the monthly cost (relatively $10) and download capacity (6GB). Is it possible to go over that limit and they just charge you more? Or do you have to wait until the next month for your downloads to reset? I know I download about 10GB a month or more so hopefully you are allowed to download as much as you want, as long as you pay for it. I can deal with that... Thanks for the help/advice/info!
