Coming from a very credible and established company, Agent Usenet has some good features that will appeal to a lot of basic Usenet users. And although their plans are limited, they still have great inclusions within these packages.

They have a good amount of connections, a great retention and completion rate and SSL encryption included free in their plans. All that said , we really would encourage our readers to check out our recommend Usenet providers listed for a better value for price.
