    I want to use usenet

    I understand you have to pay
    No problem with that

    But... I wanted to know: can I share?
    Say between 2 or 3 people

    Given that it's all limited (and not unlimited) - i.e. 30 connections and XGB download a month, sharing is not a problem

    The other thing is... can I split up and limit how much each sharer uses?
    For example, to limit each sharer to 1/3 of the download limit + limit to 10 connections?

    I tried searching for 'usenet forums' but couldn't find any results that pointed to 'good' websites, so I thought I'd try asking here

    Thanks


    OM

    Not sure if this will help but I think if you set up the account then you should have the ability to set limits. But they do have support and a usenet FAQ Here.

    You only have to pay if your ISP does not provide free access or if you need a premium service. More info here.
