Because BELNET will cease offering a news service as of June 2010, and because of the limited usage of the news service at the university, the Computing Centre also has decided to halt its news service on June 1st 2010.

In its announcement, Belnet also indicates that "different ISPs offer a news service at high quality which you have to pay for. If you want to use a news service at no extra cost, you can use the following news service https://groups.google.com. This news service has less options as the payable news services."

In a previous announcement, Belnet also referred to a newsserver "nl-news.euro.net" though this server only seems to offer a very limited list of Belgian and Dutch newsgroups.
