I've been using Newscene for a couple of weeks, so far it's ok. Any other good service providers that I might have missed?

I've heard supernews is good (formerly remarq) - I've never used them though.

I recently opted to go back to Newsguy
http://www.newsguy.com/
because you can pay for account time in advance (1 month up
to a year), and they can send you reminders to resubscribe.
That way, if the service doesn't seem up to your standards after
the time period you pay for is up, you can drop it and move on
without seeing any later charges showing up on your card.

Newscene limits your download to 48K/sec. That alone would prevent me from getting the service. I am on DSL with Bellsouth and as anyone with bellsouth knows, the newgroups SUCK.

I am also looking for an inexpensive news provider that supports binaries.
