Giganews Earns Top Honors : 2010 Editors Choice

Congratulations to Giganews who recently took top honors in our 2010 Editors Choice Awards.  This is the third year Giganews has earned the #1 ranking on NGR.  As an industry leader, Giganews continues to innovate and push the boundaries of Usenet forward.  They lead the way in retention and recently added a new service called vyprVPN to help customers protect their privacy online.

As mentioned in previous posts the Editors Choice Awards are given in recognition of the best Usenet providers based on factors including service level, performance, and value.  The providers bearing this title are thoroughly tested and evaluated by the NGR editors.  In earning top honors Giganews had stiff competition from our other Editors Choice selections which include Binverse, Astraweb, NewsDemon and Newshosting.

Let’s dive in and take a look at what gave Giganews the edge:

Giganews VyprVPN Helps Protect Your Privacy Online
A few weeks ago Giganews announced a partnership with Golden Frog to offer Diamond customers free VPN access.  The service, called VyPrVPN, allows unlimited VPN usage and normally costs $14.99 a month.  From the feedback we’ve had so far the new VPN service appears to be performing quite well.  The inclusion with Diamond accounts is a great bonus!
