Summary

Gebruikhet has good, flexible plans that vary in speed, connections and block access. Having block access plans is particularly a good offering that not all Usenet providers have. While they are not a bad provider, they’re not as impressive as other Usenet services. Their website could be updated more since it seems a little dated. FAQs on their website are limited and could be improved to provide more information and help to their users and possible subscribers. But for their price point, you get a decent amount of retention, SSL encryption and your choice of speed limits or block access.
