The Giganews team is proud to be the first and only Usenet provider reaching 2 years of high-quality binary retention. Giganews members are the only Usenet readers who can still read posts from as far back as two years ago. In two years, the Usenet feed has grown from 400Mbps to over 550Mbps.

Over 6 TB of data in the form of15 million articles is posted to Usenet from global members each day. For perspective, the largest consumer drive available today is 3TB. Usenet fills 2 of those drives every day. Giganews has stored every single article for 2 solid years. To date, Giganews has over 10 billion articles stored. To accommodate this capacity, Giganews stores multiple copies of all Usenet data, preventing incompletes and handle failures.

While increasing retention, Giganews focuses on increasing the power of its service:

Giganews is passionate about Usenet and works hard to create the very best Usenet experience available. Giganews is the only Usenet provider capable of this capacity and retention, and has no plans to stop its retention growth any time soon.
