UsenetServer has a new partner service that increases your online privacy. The company is now offering a VPN service along with their USENET access service, or as a standalone product. The bundling option is convenient for people who want privacy friendly USENET access and VPN access without having to hunt around for multiple providers.
What the VPN Offers
The VPN service has a lot of positives about it. UsenetServer does not log or monitor your use, so your privacy is respected in those regards. The company allows P2P traffic on its VPN service and doesn’t restrict your bandwidth.
The company has 70 servers to choose from, which are located in 17 different nations. They have more than 7000 IP addresses to choose from, and users can change IP addresses whenever they want.
The VPN has PPTP, L2TP and OpenVPN encryption options. A desktop client for Windows and Mac computers is available, so users can avoid having to do a manual setup to get connected to the network.
The VPN service can be purchased along with the UsenetServer USENET access for an impressive discount. Purchasing them together is priced as follows:
• 3 Days: $3 for USENET, $.0.99 for VPN
• 1 Month: $14.95 for USENET, $4.99 for VPN
• 3 Months: $39.95 for USENET, $12 for VPN
What Makes It Good
The UsenetServer VPN service is very competitive. The pricing is good and the discounts are significant when bundling the services together. There aren’t any bandwidth limitations, so this can be used as a means to secure your privacy when you’re online and doesn’t need to be restricted to particular usages to conserve bandwidth. There are two simultaneous connections allowed for subscribers, so you can feasibly secure multiple devices, which is a nice benefit to the service.
The service can protect you against nuisances such as certain sites having their bandwidth throttled by ISPs. ISPs also tend to shape traffic related to P2P protocols, as well, but cannot tell that a surfer is using P2P software when a VPN connection is being used. The UsenetServer USENET access packages are also very attractive and this is a good way to pay for two valuable services at once, and save some money in the process.
