2017 Best Usenet Providers

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.

Let’s take a closer look at our 2017 NGR Editor’s Choice winners for “Best Usenet Providers“:

Newshosting – Usenet + VPN + Client with Search

Newshosting Special

Expect the best performance and premium features for a value from Newshosting.  Including unlimited Usenet downloads and free access to their popular Newshosting Usenet client.  A very nice addition!  Along with uncapped speeds and free 256-bit SSL encryption.  Connect to their North American or European servers and enjoy unlimited Usenet.  All for just $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year (with VPN) via our NGR special.

UseNetServer – Usenet + VPN + Search

UseNetServer Special

UseNetServer provides an excellent mix of quality and value.  Since releasing their popular $10 unlimited Usenet special the service has grown rapidly.  UNS was always a staple in the industry but at $10 a month or $95.40 a year they’re really hard to pass up.  In addition to value, UseNetServer offers high retention and UNS Global Search.  Those who sign up for the UNS $95 a year deal also receive free unlimited VPN access.

Easynews – Web Usenet Interface

Easynews Web Usenet

Easynews has everything you could ask for in a Usenet service including web access.  A feature that sets them apart from our other award winners.  The Easynews web interface allows users to browse newsgroups and stream content without the need for a newsreader.  Simply open your favorite web browser.  With third party apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android mobile devices.  Easynews offers 3,000 days of NNTP retention if you want to connect via newsreader.  Web retention is over 2,600 days.  Take the new web interface for a test drive.

Easynews offers web Usenet access in addition to iPhone and Android apps.  Especially useful to those new to Usenet and others who would rather avoid the need for additional software.  Take advantage of the Easynews 14 day free trial and $9.95 unlimited NNTP offers.

Eweka – European Usenet Access

Eweka Special

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 Special

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.

The Easynews team just announced the addition of VPN access for their members.  New and existing customers can try the new VPN service for free.  Best of all Big Gig accounts will include VPN.  Members can add unlimited VPN to their Classic or Plus plan for just $2.99 a month.  That’s a great deal considering VPN normally costs in the $8-$10 a month range.  Sign up for a 14 day free trial of Easynews Usenet with VPN.

Easynews VPN

As you can see in the image above, Easynews offers an easy to use VPN client for Windows and Mac.  You can connect to any server with a single click.  Connect using OpenVPN, PPTP, or L2TP protocols.  There are several advantages to using a VPN.  For starters it will help protect your privacy and encrypt your data when online.  It will also help eliminate bandwidth throttling for Usenet and buffering from streaming services like Netflix.

The use of VPN has grown beyond privacy protection.  A good VPN like Easynews will help you access content and channels all over the world.  It helps eliminate geo-blocks.  That means you can watch multiple regions of Netflix content.  Watch BBC iPlayer from outside the UK.  Those are just a couple examples.  Last year a lot of people enjoyed World Cup coverage through a VPN.  Live sporting events are a great fit for VPN since so many channels try to geo-block based on the location of your IP address.

Let’s take a look at the countries in which Easynews hosts VPN servers:

  • The Easynews VPN network includes servers in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Big Gig customers already have full access to the VPN service.  If you download heavily from Usenet and would like to have access to a web interface I highly recommend that plan.  Otherwise I would suggest starting with the Easynews Classic plan.  For $9.98 a month you can download 20 GB a month.  Step up to the Plus plan with 40 GB a month for $14.97.  You can add unlimited VPN to either plan for just $2.99 a month.  If you haven’t had a chance to try Easynews or want to check out their new VPN then I highly recommend signing up for their 14 day free trial.  Give the service a good test drive and let us know what you think @NewsgroupRevs.

Web Usenet Takes a Leap Forward

Less than a year ago we reported on Easynews web retention growth.  At the time they had expanded the number of days users could search for content via web browser from 150-200 days up to 400 days.  That was quite impressive at the time.  Since then the Easynews team has been hard at work continuing to build out the service.  They recently announced that web retention is at 1,613 days and will continue to grow each day.

We enjoy sharing updates from Usenet providers and software developers on a regular basis.  A lot of times the changes are incremental or focus on a very specific feature.  Every now and then we get a game changer.  Something that will completely change the experience for users.  This is definitely one of those times.  Easynews just announced that for the first time ever they are increasing web retention on a daily basis.

Easynews web retention

We have a lot to talk about in this post but I don’t want to leave you hanging on the most important news.  The increase in web-Usenet retention.  Just a year ago members had access to 150 days (Classic) or 200 days (Plus and BigGig) of binary files.  They have totally blown that away.  Now members have access to up to 1,613 days of web retention with additional growth each day.  For example tomorrow they will have 1,614 days and the next day it will be at 1,615.  That’s nearly four and a half years of web retention and growing.

Let’s take a closer look at the Easynews web-based Usenet plans:

Easynews Usenet plans

  • BigGig (1,613+ days web retention) – 150 GB a month + unlimited NNTP, rollover and 12 GB loyalty bonus
  • Plus Plan (525 days web retention) – 40 GB a month + rollover gigs and 2 GB loyalty bonus
  • Classic Plan (365 days web retention) – 20 GB a month + rollover gigs and 1 GB loyalty bonus
  • Plus and Classic plans can be upgraded to full web retention for just $2.99 a month

Need to go back more than 1,613 days to find content?  If so Easynews has you covered.  Members can use free Usenet clients like SABnzbd, Binreader or GrabIt along with premium newsreaders like Newsbin and Newsleecher to access 2,000 days of binary retention.  Usage is discounted 50% and taken off your monthly allotment of gigs.  They also offer an unlimited NNTP plan.  BigGig members receive unlimited NNTP for free.

We could go on and on about the features in Easynews web interface but it’s better to try it for yourself.  You can search, preview and download content from within your web browser.  It works with all the major web browsers.  There are also some cool iOS and Android apps available.  Our favorite is EZ Global Search.  We enjoy using it on both iPhone and iPad.  Android users can try out EZ Usenet and EasyBrowser apps.

As we mentioned earlier you can’t fully appreciate Easynews without trying the web interface for yourself.  Check out their upgraded retention and look over the plans and service features.  Once you’ve had a chance to get familiar with the specifics you can test drive the service for free.  Sign up for their 14 day free trial and test out the web interface.  You will automatically have access to up to 1,613+ days of web retention.

The Easynews web interface is a one of a kind.  You can browse over 1,300 days of binary retention through your web browser.  With the ability to search for content, view images, preview and stream.  All without any software.  Then if you want to go beyond 1,300 days you can fire up your favorite newsreader and browse up to 1,900 days of retention. You can check out our Easynews web interface review to see some of the features in action.

Confused by NNTP vs. web retention?  If so here’s a quick explanation:

  • NNTP retention uses newsgroup software like SABnzbd, Newsbin Pro, NewsLeecher, or Binreader to browse and download from Usenet.  Easynews includes NNTP access with all their plans.  They also have the option of unlimited NNTP Usenet for just $9.95 a month.  With or without a corresponding web plan.
  • The web interface and web retention are unique to Easynews.  A great choice for those new to Usenet who don’t want to mess with installing a client.  Use the web interface to search for content, preview, stream and download.  Easynews also supports iOS and Android.  New members can try it free for 14 days.

Remember to sign up soon to enjoy 1 GB of Easynews web and NNTP access over 30 days for just 1 cent.
