The following brief list of free text news servers is in alphabetical order without editorial comment. It's a short list. Check out the servers and decide for yourself which one is best for you. No one knows what works for you better than you do. [Some additions made to Black Dragon's original list.]

  • Mixmin--This is an nntp link (nntp://news.mixmin.net). Your browser or newsreader will have to be configured correctly to use it.
  • nntps://news.mixmin.net -- An nntps link. Same caveat.
