UseNetServer – 2010 NGR Editors Choice Award

Congratulations to UseNetServer for recently being selected for an NGR Editors’ Choice Award.  The awards represents our picks for the top 5 Usenet providers and are updated quarterly to keep up with the market.  The value and reliability of UNS helped them make it all the way up to #2 in our latest list.

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.  UseNetServer joins Giganews, Binverse, NewsDemon and Supernews as our latest Editors Choice selections.

For UseNetServer the deciding factors included the value and reliability of the service.  Their $10 unlimited special helped them earn the #2 spot.  Other top providers including Supernews and NewsDemon offer comparably priced accounts.  However, UseNetServer stands out for offering high binary retention along with UNS global search which allows you to search newsgroups without downloading headers.

Let’s take a closer look at the UNS High-Speed Plus account features:

575+ Days of Binary Retention
– UseNetServer offers over a year and a half of binary retention along with two years of text retention.  That puts them right in line with other top providers.  Retention continues to grow daily with no end in sight.

Unlimited Usenet Access – $10 a Month for Life!
– The UNS High-Speed Plus plan is normally $17.95 a month.  They are currently offering the same service to NGR visitors for $10 a month for life.  That’s 40% off for the life of the account.  With high retention and UNS global search we consider this one of the best deals around.

UNS Global Search
– The UNS global search tool provides a nice online interface for searching newsgroups.  It offers a number of filters to narrow down search results.  Using UNS global search will save you the hassle of downloading headers.  It currently supports searching up to 250 days of posts.  We look forward to future increases.

24/7 Customer Support – Phone, Online, Email
– You hope to never have technical or billing issues but if the time arises it’s great to know you’re covered.  With UseNetServer you can contact support by phone, chat live online or drop them an email.  You can also find answers to common questions in the support area.

Other UNS features include 99%+ completion rate, news servers located in the US and Europe, up to 20 simultaneous connections and free 256-bit SSL encryption.  All of that packed into a $10 account helped UNS earn an NGR Editors’ Choice Award.  To learn more read our UseNetServer review or sign up for a $10 unlimited account.
