Cox Is Going To Decline Usenet Access on June 2010

Cox Is Going To Decline Usenet Access on June 2010

Cox ISP decided to cancel free Usenet service because of slightly reduced user demand. The other reason is reorientation to other “priorities”. Those users, who want to stay with Usenet, will be able to use Giganews– the most widely-used service in the niche of newsgroups. Cox client will be offered special pricing – the 50% discount for first two month and 10% discount for the whole period of subscription.


In the e-mail message that was sent to each Cox client they could read that the decision would come in force on June 30th of 2010. After declining newsgroups, the company will work hardly on increasing the Internet speed, new services launch. In the nearest plans is the release of Cox Media Store and Share.

Telling the truth, most of Usenet fans already use Giganews. So it’s like additional bounty – to get a discount. Declining other Usenet services will not affect Cox users too much. Perhaps there will be not many new Giganews subscribers, but they offer 600 days data retention and free VPN – this is worth attention!

According to Giganews officials, the list of discounts includes 50% 0ff 2 months for Diamond accounts, 50% off 1 month for other discounts and 10% lifetime rebate for all accounts.

The term ‘lifetime’ means that the discount will last while the discount is active. This offer will last at least a few months after Cox declines Usenet access.

On September 2009 Usenet was declined by Verizon. Before this AT&T, Time Warner Cable and Sprint did the same ¬– mostly as a measure for stopping child pornography distribution via alt.bin and alt.bain newsgroups, that mostly contained data files and sometimes illegal content.

“We are still offering access to newsgroups in our Internet Service Offerings. The only change is the declining the access to alt.bin and alt.bain hierarchies where the cases of child pornography content were revealed. There is no chance to prevent such cases in future,” such an explanation was given by AT&T during the official Usenet declining on July 2009.

The reason announced by Verizon was the “reduced demand” on Usenet services, as well as the move of their customers to more interesting and convenient ways of data sharing in the Internet.

It is clear that Cox followed Verizon’s approach, and even more – it tried to get beneficial discounts from alternative vendor like Giganews. This may balance the interests of both ISP and its customers in a gentle way.

No avatarUsenet groups make P2P look like a Snail Race, even at the BEST of download Speed.... P2P is simply 'more organized' and DEFINITELY more user friendly. Usenet on the other hand, is very 'SAFE' without having to take 'MASSIVE PRECAUTIONS' like those in the USA and abroad.
