I've decided to offer usenet accounts for bitcoin but before I go ahead I just want to check what the interest would be. Would you subscribe to a reliable usenet provider for bitcoin?

If bitcoin's price jumps again, will you still be charging 4-5 BTC a month, or would you peg the price to USD?

I would make the bitcoin price variable, so it will be pegged to around $20 but I won't be adjusting the price for minor fluctuations or on a regular basis. So if the bitcoin price jumps up I would slash the price.

Would it be possible to also offer a different pricing model based on bandwidth used? Something like what bitcointorrentz.com does?

I wasn't planning on doing that since I just wanted to focus on offering unlimited accounts for a reasonable price, but if the demand was there yes I would include that.

Unlike fiat currencies, bitcoin makes it easy to do on-demand micro-payments for instant gratification, rather than monthly subscriptions. I think you should take advantage of this and offer such a service: I'm sure there will be demand if implemented right.

No it's $15, astraweb have the advantage of being a large company so they can afford to set lower prices, and they don't accept bitcoin. the price isn't final, I'll release more information at the end of the week.  I probably will drop the price to $15 and there will be an option to buy a years subscription for a discounted rate. And an option to buy 3 months for around $30.

$20 a month for a usenet account? That seems a bit high if you ask me.

I'm on the Astraweb $8 per month unlimited plan (which is available for anyone by the way, just google astraweb $96 and it'll pop up), so I will probably stick with that for now.

However I do see the appeal of paying with btc.
