    If any of you are thinking about looking for a new ISP, please read this on
    adslguide.org.uk about Nildram before making your decision:

    In addition to an overpriced product line, silly charges for real IP's,
    declining customer service - Nildram gave it's users 5 days notice on a
    third party site that they were closing their usenet server. They cite that
    usenet users are an "extremely small, but vocal minority":

    There are a lot of customers who have been with Nildram for many years now
    looking to leave. You can make your own call, but Nildram is not the ISP
    that it used to be.

    They haven't closed them, just changed the authentication procedures. You
    now have to put your id as instead of just jobloggs,
    and they've added similar authentication to the GN mirror, which previously
    didn't require it.

    This posted through Nildram as above.

    When I rang the help desk, they promised to get back to me on why I hadn't
    been informed about the changes. The next day I received a mail explaining
    that the reason I was not told was that I had unsubscribed from emails from
    Nildram.
    Where did you get this information? When I rang the service desk, I was
    told there was no change in conditions.
    ship and moving over to Zen.

    I too have been looking at other ISPs, but I haven't found one with decent
    NGs yet.. Come back to us after a while and let us know what you think of
    Zen.

    Many are jumping ship. I have no clue what the management are thinking
    about.
