Your Fast Usenet subscription comes with a customized version of Grabit newsreader which you can use to search and download content on Usenet news servers. Their customized newsreader comes in a web and mobile version.
Fast Usenet is a good service provider that offers decent benefits when you subscribe. The inclusion of a customized newsreader is a good feature to their plans. Not only is it a significant addition to their service but also makes setting up a little easier for users. Retention time is also great with Fast Usenet with over 4562 days. But while the provider has some impressive offerings, there is always still room for improvement in terms of more competitive features and additional payment options.
