The contract stated "internet access" - actual content unstated.  For years,
that included Usenet.  Then all of a sudden, they stopped providing usenet.

"Internet access" means that they give you an ip address.  That's all.

My ISP advertised a list of services.  Usenet was on that list.  A fixed IP
address costs more than one randomly selected by DHCP from an address pool.
My ISP has different internet access prices for different bandwidths.
Having no broadband competition (satellite access not-with-standing) they
have developed a take-it-or-leave-it attitude.  They are phone company and
have bundled their DSL with land-line and TV services in such a way that the
DSL is cost-prohibitive without the land line.

I'd wager that there was "small print" that said that those services
were subject to change at the whim of the ISP.

Small town telco.  No small print.  They do whatever they want whenever they
feel like it.  If you don't like it, just move to another town.
