How do we do it?

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