    Default Very OT: Usenet Problems w/Cox

    Any other Cox users having problems accessing Usenet? I can't access
    anything since early afternoon.

    I just heard yesterday Wayne, that Cox is one of the ISPs that is
    getting rid of Usenet. Along with about 18 others. That is probably
    why.

    So glad I use the German server..which is independant of any ISP.

    Thanks, Christine. I have not heard this, nor has Cox made any
    announcements to subscribers. Of course, that's not to say they
    aren't doing this. Actually, I'm getting an error message about
    exceeding connections. I had been accessing Usetnet most of the
    morning and early afternoon, then suddenly got the error message.
    This has happened before, but not recently. I'll have to look further
    into it.

    I use Cox, and haven't had a problem recently, but I have in the past. It
    usually lasts a day or two, then goes back to normal.

    There are rumors of Cox getting rid of Usenet, but (though they do outsource
    it), they deny this when asked.

    "Time Warner Cable has already signed the new agreement with the
    NCTA, NCMEC, and NAAG, but the cable operators involved in today's
    announcement include Comcast Corporation, Cox Communications,
    Charter Communications, Cablevision Systems Corporation, Bright
    House Networks, Suddenlink Communications, Mediacom Communications,
    Insight Communications, Bresnan Communications, Midcontinent
    Communications, Broadstripe, GCI, Harron Communications, US Cable
    Corporation, BendBroadband, Eagle Communications, and Sjoberg's,
    Inc."

    This doesn't mean they will turn off Usenet entirely.
