We’re excited to share our 2017 Editor’s Choice Award winners. The honorees include some of the best known and most popular Usenet providers in the world. Those who frequent Newsgroup Reviews know that we update the awards post on a regular basis to keep up with changes in the market. This time around we’re excited to share enhancements to some popular Usenet services and the addition of VPN packages.
You’ll notice that we celebrate the accomplishments of multiple newsgroup services with our Editors Choice Awards. The reason is that we enjoy a number of Usenet providers and feel each offers an advantage over the others. With criteria to include extra features, high retention, completion, performance, reliability and value.
Congratulations to all of our 2017 NGR Editor’s Choice Award winners. We would like to thank each provider for their ongoing efforts in supporting the continued growth of Usenet. The list of award recipients starts with Newshosting followed closely by UseNetServer, Easynews, Eweka, and Supernews.

Eweka – European Usenet Access
Eweka is our favorite Dutch Usenet provider. You will be hard pressed to find a better European newsgroup service. They offer the highest retention in the region along with high speed downloads. You will need to have a Dutch IP address to sign up. You can use a VPN to subscribe to the service. After you sign up you can connect to their servers from anywhere in the world. Eweka is perhaps the best kept secret in Usenet.
Eweka offers 3,000+ days of binary retention and 1,265 days of text posts. Subscribers enjoy unlimited Usenet, 256-bit SSL, 100 Mbps speeds, and 24/7 support for just €7,50 a month. The special also includes a free upgrade to 100 Mbit which normally costs an extra €2,10 a month.
Supernews – Usenet Only Access
Supernews was one of the first Usenet providers in the market. I remember using their service along with Newsguy in the late 90’s. That may seem like a long time ago but Supernews remains one of the top names in the industry. The newspaper man is back with a good value on Usenet access. The only difference is that Supernews doesn’t include extras like software and VPN. Otherwise the quality is excellent.
Supernews offers 2,350+ days of binary retention along with 4,500 days of text posts. Members enjoy unlimited Usenet, 256-bit SSL, 30 connections, and 24/7 tech support. Take advantage of our Supernews deal and sign up for $9.99/mo. or $99/yr. and enjoy unlimited Usenet access.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our 2017 Editor’s Choice Awards for the best Usenet providers. Please help us recognize and congratulate the winners for their accomplishments. We look forward to the year ahead.
