What are Newsfeeds on Usenet?

Newsfeeds are the information files that are uploaded and downloaded from the newsgroup community. Usenet is a bulletin board type system of linked computers that contain thousands of newsgroups, which are discussion areas organized by subject matter.

Accessing Usenet Newsgroup Feeds

In order to access the Newsfeeds on Usenet, you must have access to the newsgroups with a provider. One way to get access is through your Internet Service Provider. Most ISP’s provide some sort of access to the newsgroups with subscriptions. They usually offer you a web gateway, which allows you to look for and search newsgroups for topics of your choice. The problem with using your ISP to access the newsfeeds is that most often they do not have as many servers available to look for topics, thus limiting your ability to find the information you are looking for.

Another way to access newsgroup feeds is to search for free servers, but these can be hard to find and do not always offer as much information as you would like. In this case, you will need a newsreader to access the information. A newsreader is a program that that makes downloading information from Usenet much easier.

Best Way to Access Usenet Newsgroups

In order to access as many Usenet feeds as possible, your best option is to go through a quality service provider. They will provide you with access to many more newsgroup feeds than the other two options discussed earlier.

The top Usenet service available is Fast Usenet. provides access to more than 100,000 newsgroups with discussion on every topic you can think of. This is by far the easiest way to gain access to every article and feed on Usenet.
