You still have an ISP. You can't peer using something as tiny as a T1.
Just traceroute somewhere and you'll see what your ISP is. Then go
to their web site, look for the customer support page, and they should
list their NNTP server somewhere.

Alternatively, there is a free server in Germany you can use if your ISP
doesn't provide decent news service. Go to http://news.cis.dfn.de/ for
more information.
