Definitively not.

MANY IAP forbid the use of NNTP (e.g. the french Providers Bougues and
Orange) because of the HUGE traffic it produce.

Also you can not access NNTP from mobile devices without killing your
data traffic allowance...

Telia in Estonia has no restrictions, but downloading the index of a
Kernel Devel Newsgroup has just produced 356MByte traffic!  WTF?
