Newshosting’s offers their Lightning Accelerator which is similar to the Giganews accelerator which improves header download speeds using stunnel. While most people typically don’t take advantage of this nonetheless this is a nice additional feature.

    I am still within my 14day Trial. I will say I am extremely happy with their service. Very fast! Tops out my connection. And so far I have found EVERYTHING that I searched for. Well worth the monthly cost for such a reliable source for all my DL’s. I will recommend them to others for sure!

    Just signed up with newshosting. Having never used usenet before I don’t have anything to compare them to but I couldn’t be happier with their service. I would recommend them to anyone.

    First I would like to thank this site( their informative and helpful reviews. The coupons and discounts they offer are an added bonus.

    Last week I joined newshosting because of the price, the built in browser and it sounded like one of the easier providers for a first time user. Im happy to say that newshosting is pretty easy to set up and use. They have a tremendous amount of content that is easy to DL. Im very happy with the service and would recommend to all.

    I took a trial with these guys, and it worked well (after a few minutes waiting for the automatic setup, the download speed was nice and the retention perfect). You actually don’t need a credit card, a PayPal account works, too. When I was done trying their service, I managed to mess things up and accidently turn my account into a paid one without meaning to. I sent them an e-mail, and within hours they cancelled my account and paid back the full amount! My trust in online companies has been pleasantly restored :). Thank you Newshosting!

    I have used newshosting, but there is just too much crap and junk postings that pollute the groups. Also, some interesting groups disappeared.

    I’ve had Newshosting for about 2 Years now and all has been good since day one. They have always been fast, reliable and any questions I’ve had have been answered within a day. Great service.

    Junk and crap postings are a reflection of USENET in general and not Newshosting. Typically you would need to use a USENET provider like Newshosting together with a well run NZB site (See the list here to help your filter out the junk.
