AnarQy Review

Last Updated: Feb 15, 2021


While AnarQy offers unlimited downloads through their primary server and provides easy access to newsgroups using your internet browser, their service seems dated and could use a lot of improvements. There isn’t a lot of information on their website or an FAQ section that could help in making a sound decision to go for an AnarQy service.

Note: This Usenet provider has not updated its pricing and services in several years. It is also quite evident on their website that they are unable to compete with top Usenet providers in the industry today. However, this is not to say that they are a bad provider.


AnarQy’s monthly subscription is $8.99 which includes the following:

· Unlimited downloads on their primary server · 12 to 20 connection depending on the server used · SSL encryption · Daily download allowance of 2GB on other servers. Unused credits accumulate.

For a detailed breakdown of inclusions per server, please scroll down to configuration information.


This provider only has a retention of around 360 days, which is very low compared to current industry standards.

Free Trial

AnarQy does not have a free trial offering, but they have a $2.95 fee for a 7-day trial. You will not be charged if you cancel on or before the 7th day, but once the 8th day begins, they will charge you with their regular subscription fee of $8.99 per month until cancelled.

Additional Products

While AnarQy has multiple servers both in the US and Europe which may appeal to some consumers, their service is dated and seems like their website or features have not been updated and improved for quite some time now. This provider offers a decent amount of connections and SSL encryption, but they could increase their retention rate for the price subscribers pay for their service.

Other Usenet providers charge the same rate with better features and an updated service. Better instead to check out our list of best usenet providers listed at the top of the page.
