Nope. I'm sure China Unicom doesn't do that bastion of unmoderated free speech...usenet. When I was in the UK my ISP then was Telewest then Virgin, they did newsgroups but the service sucked. That's why I subscribed to Giganews, mainly for the binaries.

BTW it's living in China, that made me take a serious interest in using Linux and FOSS more and more.
