    I'm with Zen for my sins, and I'm fed up with there Usenet service (or lack
    of) so anyone know of a decent ISP that has decent news server and retention
    longer then 24 hours and hopefully will take payments by cheque but will set
    up DD if I have to.

    Most ISPs are under the 30 pound mark these days. Have a look at ADSL
    Guide (www.adslguide.org.uk) for comparisons of the different ISPs.

    Much depends on what you mean by "decent news server". Many like PlusNet
    for example have a news server that is fine for most text based groups -
    but retention on the binary groups is poor. This seems to be the case
    for most ISP bundled news servers.

    server, its free, reliable, quick and posts appear instantly.
