The free server list has some good suggestions but if you can spare
$10 per year (or whatever 10 euros is at current exchange rates), I and
many people would suggest  Well-connected, carries
all well-formed text groups across many heirarchies, Cleanfeed etc,
no binaries nor posting limits (within reason) - and helpful support
people.  My current ISP carries Usenet but I still keep my
subscription because the feed is so complete and timely.
