Connection Speeds / Server Locations

We have not tested the service of Newgroups-Download, but they claim on their website that they have fast downloading and uploading services.

There are 3 servers available on the following addresses:

  • nyc.newsgroups-download.com
  • phoenix.newsgroups-download.com

As you can see from these addresses, 2 servers are located in the USA and one in the Europe. Up to 8 high-speed connections are available, but if the user chooses the unlimited package, up to four connections are available. According the server addresses and the lack of information about it, it appears that SSL encryption is not available.

Technical Notes

There are no technical information provided on Newgroups-Download’s website.

Quality of Service

We have not tried the services of Newgroups-Download, but their website states the retention to be 200 days, probably for both binary and text newsgroups. The completion is over 99%.

Customer Service

They claim to have the fanatical technical support, offering the assistance both for the newbies and for the veteran usenet users. They are always happy to provide step-by-step instructions on how to configure newsreader client, to provide the solution for different troubleshoot problems, providing the information about accounts and billing and other. Finally, they encourage the user to send the feedback on their e-mail address so they can improve their service.

Conclusion

We have seen better pricing for this money and 200 days of retention is far from extraordinary. Better options for Usenet services are available here, Best Usenet Providers.
