Does anyone know any fast newsgroup server ?

I usually go via google groups, but it is updated only once every four-six hours, and your posts take that long to appear. Nntp is blocked at work, so I can access newsgroup servers only through http.

Ideally, your ISP should give that service. Ask for NNTP server name from them. Most if not all ISPs in the USA provide 3 basic services, internet access, email service and newsgroup service.

Thanks chinaman,. but the problem is that I don't have a net connection from home. I access this only from work and chat and nntp is blocked from here :(
