After writing the previous post, UsenetServer.com was shown to me. For only two dollars more than Giganews' 25GB/month service, they provide the same number of concurrent connections as Giganews, unlimited bandwidth, free SSL support, and are local to Atlanta. Oh, and they remove the X-Trace header from your posts adding just a little more anonymity. The downside? They index fewer groups and the retention is currently nineteen days fewer than Giganews. Personally, I think it is a good tradeoff for the money. I'm quite positive that UsenetServer indexes any group I could ever want to read, and if they don't, they will add it if requested.
So, I've replaced the Giganews button with a UsenetSever button and removed the previous referral links. If you were considering usenet access after my previous post, but were put off by the price to bandwidth ratio, I feel confident in recommending UNS. The person who referred me has been using them for a long time, and he gave them a glowing recommendation. From what I've seen so far, they are on par with Giganews (minus the two aforementioned minuses).
