Cox Communications and Atlantic Broadband Discontinue Usenet Access
April 27th, 2010

With recent news that both Atlantic Broadband and Cox Communications are dropping USENET access for customers, ThunderNews has responded with 20% discounts for all former customers of the Usenet Newsgroup access providers.

Cox Communications recently announced that they will discontinue Usenet access to customers by June 30th. Coincidentally, ISP Atlantic Broadband is also discontinuing Usenet Newsgroup access to its customers all along the east coast of the United States.

With the rising costs of offering and maintaining Usenet newsgroup servers, both companies have long offered the service as part of their online packages. Unable to continue providing access, both Internet Service Providers have made June cutoff date announcements.

ThunderNews welcomes all customers of both Altantic Broadband and Cox Communications. Details and coupon code of the special are available on our website. The current special is applicable to all monthly plans and only available for a limited time.

ThunderNews offers lightning speed access to over 106,000 active Usenet newsgroups with over 600 days of binary retention and still growing daily. With servers in both the United States and Europe, ThunderNews offers 50 simultaneous connections and a free newsreader with any monthly subscription.
