Eweka Review

Last Updated: Feb 09, 2021


Eweka manages their own backbone and therefore is able to provide excellent internet connection. You always have the shortest routes, very low ping times and the highest possible speed. Should a connection fail, an alternative route will automatically be chosen since all connections are redundant. On their Usenet platform, you get the highest possible quality of newsgroups and connects you to over 125,000+ newsgroups.


All Eweka plans provide users with unlimited access with speeds up to 300 Mbps. They also include 256-bit SSL encryption free across all their plans. Availing of their subscription high speed plan, gives you a 27% discount if you subscribe for an annual service.
