Because of the reduced demand for newsgroups, Suddenlink discontinued its newsgroup service as of March 3, 2014.  Subscribers will not be able to post or download material from the Suddenlink newsgroup service after that date. Newsgroups were initially developed as a text-based way to share information on the Internet.

 

Today, demand for newsgroups is much lower, since most users have switched to more convenient ways to obtain and share information online, including through social media.

 

MORE INFORMATION

 

Q: When did Suddenlink discontinue its newsgroup service?
A: The service was discontinued on March 3, 2014.

 

Q: If I want to continue to access newsgroups, what are my options?
A: There are several commercial newsgroup providers you might consider. Options are listed at http://www.newsgroupreviews.com. The available content, posting policies, terms and prices (if applicable) will vary. If you elect to access a non-Suddenlink newsgroup service over the Suddenlink network, our Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy will still apply to your use of our Internet service.

 

Q: Are any changes to my software required?
A: Yes. You will need to do two things. First, you will need to remove the suddenlink.net USENET newsgroup service from your newsreader software. Second, if you want to continue accessing newsgroups, you will need to configure your newsreader software to connect to your new newsgroup service. Follow your new service provider's instructions for accessing their newsgroup service.

The following link explains how to subscribe and unsubscribe to Newsgroups in Outlook Express: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/171190.

 

Q: Will this change to the newsgroup service affect my Suddenlink Internet service?
A: No, this change will not affect your ability to use your Suddenlink Internet service or other commercial newsgroup services.
