Usenext retention upgraded to 976 days!

In spite of just having raised the retention time for binaries to 910 days just a few weeks ago, the well-known Usenet provider UseNeXT raised the bar for competitors with a retention time of now 976 days. This means that files will remain on Usenet servers for more than 2 years and 8 months!

Retention time for text files remains unchanged at 1,500 days.

It has to be seen how other providers will react. As a rule, Usenet providers tend to offer similar retention times in order to remain competitive (check our list for an overview of some of the more famous Usenet access providers).

From a users point of view these changes are nothing but good news – looking at the harsh competition in the market, this upgrade surely won’t be the last.
