Giganews currently carries over 120,000+ newsgroups and is constantly adding new groups as they become available. Giganews stores articles based on the newsgroup hierarchy the article was posted in. Currently, Giganews splits newsgroups into two categories - binary and text newsgroups. Articles in Binary Newsgroups offer 3+ years retention and articles in Text Newsgroups offer 16+ years retention.
Caution: When comparing Giganews' binary newsgroups retention with that of other news servers, remember that Giganews carries a full complement of binary newsgroups and our article completion rates are usually 99%+. You may find a news server that claims high retention, but oftentimes they lack newsgroups and complete articles render additional retention unusable.
