Supernews – 2010 NGR Editors Choice Award

Congratulations to Supernews who recently earned an NGR Editors’ Choice Award.  The awards represent our picks for the top 5 Usenet providers and are updated quarterly to keep up with the market.  The performance and reliability of Supernews helped them earn the award.

As mentioned in previous posts the 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.  Supernews joins Giganews, UseNetServer, Binverse and NewsDemon as our latest Editors Choice selections.

It would be easy to look at the price ($9.99 a month for NGR visitors) and assume the reason for the award is value.  That certainly comes into play but more important was the reliability and performance of Supernews.  The service takes advantage of the most reliable network to offer 100% availability and over 99% completion across all groups.

Supernews binary retention recently grew to over a year.  They now offer 400 days of binaries to be exact.  Not the highest in the industry.  For that you would need to look to Giganews who is now over 610 days of binary retention and counting.  For the price though you can’t beat the performance and reliability of Supernews.

Here are some highlights of the Supernews service:
– Unlimited Usenet access
– 400+ days binary retention
– 1,000+ days text retention
– access to over 110,000 newsgroups
– 99%+ completion rate
– excellent speed (up to 30 connections)
– news server in the US, Europe and Asia
– free 256-bit SSL encryption
