A Reader Server
is a computer within a Usenet system used to allow end users to post and download Usenet articles
. A reader server
may also be part of a larger Usenet cluster which may include feeder and storage servers. Giganews provides an army of geographically redundant reader server
s to help ensure we have enough capacity to allow our customers to download as fast as their connections will allow.
