UsenetReviewz Long Term Contract Discounts

We normally recommend monthly pricing because Usenet providers are always changing, competing and offering new services. That said, if you are comfortable signing up for a year, then be sure to take advantage of these special discounts.

NewsDemon$9.95Monthly2265 Newsdemon Review Special Offer

Other best Usenet providers have pricing discounts for longer term signups but we feel these are just a distraction. Its hard to beat UseNetServer and Astraweb pricing of $8 or less per month for a yearly signup.

Usenet Provider Comparison – Compare Usenet Providers

Please note, we only list the best in the industry and we don’t bother with any Usenet services that we don’t feel are at least a decent quality. There are many Usenet service providers and in some cases there can be Usenet for free but we only bother with the top premium Usenet service providers.

To save the most money possible be sure to check out our UsenetReviewz Special Offers page page.

Factors when Choosing a Premium Usenet Provider

  • Price - This should be obvious but $10 has different meanings for different people.  Expect to pay around $10 minimum for good Usenet service. Example:  Giganews top plan – the diamond one –  is also one of the most expensive but I personally use it as it is the best out there and if you are heavy Usenet user concerned about privacy Giganews Usenet should be on your short list.
  • Retention -  You want a provider with a good amount of retention. The top providers when it comes to retention are Giganews , Astraweb Usenet, Usenetserver Usenet.   Giganews is the leader but Astraweb are only 9 and 20 days behind respectively so the difference there is very little.
  • Free Trial - Free Usenet trial accounts allow you to check out Usenet service and see if they are right for you. Most of our top providers have free usenet trial plans so you can confirm if the service is good or not. We help you make your decision also by reviewing the facts and offering video reviews for our top 8 Usenet providers.
  • Connections -  Connections are important but not that important. Your download speeds will increase a bit when you jump from 8 to 30 connections but not that much. However, you probably want at a minimum 8 connections so you can download news headers and download binary files at the same time.
  • Groups - Important but not that important. Most of the action with regards to Usenet binary downloads is concentrated in a handful of groups that change from time to time so you needn’t be too concerned with this number.
  • SSL - protects your anonymity and privacy. You want this option especially if you live in the USA or in Europe where surveillance is unfortunately more common.
  • Server Location – You ideally will want a server in the same geographical location as you. Most servers are located in the USA, Europe or in the case of Giganews – Hong Kong.

All Usenet Providers
