    OK....I asked for access to this free news server. It took them a week to
    respond, but it was worth waiting for.

    news.individual.net is fast, all the posts appear to be there and they carry
    all of the newsgroups I follow...and my posts appear almost instantly on
    other NZ news servers - judging by the rapid responses.

    I do not know if they carry binary newsgroups. I have not looked.

    Yes, it is an amazingly good service for a free server. Posts show up
    instantly on Easynews too. And no, they do not carry any binary
    groups.
