news.sunsite.dk has been serving me fine for several years now. I
heartily recommend it, as it also supports authentication, so you can
use it from everywhere around the globe, as long as you keep your
`~/.authinfo' file around.
It does not carry *all* the groups that some servers may have (IIRC the
alt.* hierarchy is not supported), but my current `~/.newsrc' file
and all these groups are supported by this server.
