Extreme Usenet Review

Last Updated: Feb 10, 2021


Extreme Usenet provides quality service that includes a good amount of retention, use of their European servers, access to 150,000 groups and free SSL encryption. Enjoy unlimited downloading with speeds up to 200 Mbit/s.


Extreme Usenet has two plan options that are differentiated by how many hours users can access Usenet. All subscriptions are non-recurring, so users have the option to renew or not when plans expire.

Their 24/7 access plans differ in speed and number connections and can be availed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually.

Extreme Usenet also offers discount packages which allow Usenet access for only 12 hours a day. There are three time options for this package: 0:00 to 12:00, 2:00 to 14:00, or 4:00 to 16:00 with GMT+1 time zone. With this plan, you also get the same features others get from 24/7 access like SSL encryption and the full 1500+ days of retention.

While Extreme Usenet does not offer unlimited speed with any of their plans, they do have enough options that would suit the needs of users. They have different speed options partnered with decent amounts of connections at reasonable prices. You can also save money by up to 60% by subscribing to their 12/7 access plans. This would be perfect for Usenet users who have automated tools and are able to download during off-peak hours.
