Red Orb News Special Coupons

Currently, there are no special coupons available.

Red Orb News Speed

Since their high speed news servers are located in the US and Europe. And users should have no problems if they are located in these areas. We maxed out our 12 MB connection in our testing.

SSL (256 bit) is offered included with every plan, encryption is available with all their newsgroup services. Therefore, an encryption will help keep user’s data transmissions secure.

They offer 10 and 20 connection options.

Social networking

They have something called Red Orb News TV, which is actually an official YouTube channel, although it offers only three very short animations and from this point of view, we don’t find it useful for end users.

They have Twitter , Facebook and blogs setup, etc but these all seem a bit out of date.

Customer support

Red Orb News provides 24/7 customers support. Regardless, they encourage users that they read their Support/FAQ page first and see if their issue is already addressed there. They provide an e-mail support any time, but additionally, they also have a live chat available during most hours of the day.

From their website

The Internet is their second home, and they know what it takes to make the online world a smash. They’ve worked hard to give users the best newsgroups service possible, so why not give Red Orb News a shot.

Conclusion

Although RedOrbNews represents a decent choice for a Usenet Provider, we are recommending that you look at our best Usenet Providers list first or our special offers page.

    I used Red Org for a while but there are better deals available now. The site doesn’t seem to have been updated since last October which leaves me to suspect it’s been semi-abandoned. I couldn’t hardly ever get secure access to work and the EU server began to fail to connect recently too. The US server still works for unsecure downloads but that about it. As a result I switched to another service which is half the price for unlimited and secure access works too and as a result I’m very happy.

    All in all my review for Red Orb can be summed up as: not recommended.
