How do we do it?

  • Software

    We Built the Software

    Unlike most Usenet providers who use third-party software, Giganews writes 100% of its server software. Building the code allows us to continually optimize our Usenet servers for speed.

  • Networks

    We Connect to the Most Networks

    We connect to multiple high-quality backbone providers and the largest ISPs in the world. By investing in our premium network, we find the shortest, quickest path to you.

  • Servers

    We Deploy Servers Worldwide

    While most providers run only one or two servers, Giganews deploys servers in Europe and North America. No matter where you are, our nearby servers ensure low latency and fast speeds.
