While the price for the Diamond service has gone up slightly its worth noting that their Usenet only top tier plan — the Platinum has actually gone down in price. Â Also the Diamond service is also including the VyprVPN service which after a year of testing is now very robust and offers a lot of security when surfing the Internet.
