Speed Test

Newsgrabber Speed Test

NewsGrabber delivers the fast speed they promise. But while most Usenet providers feature excellent speed, you are also limited by how fast your own internet connection is. So, make sure to choose a plan that goes well with your internet service provider.

Privacy

They include fast and anonymous SSL port in all of their packages, giving users secure and safe access to Usenet.

NewsGrabber collects personal and payment information from its users for the purpose of processing and managing your subscription. NewsGrabber does not provide any personal data or customer consumption data to any court of law unless required.

Technical and organizational measures are in place to protect data against unauthorized access, transfer, destruction or other unauthorized processing.

Customer Service

For assistance, you may reach NewsGrabber through the support page on their website where you can browse through frequently asked questions or submit a ticket for your general, technical or payment concerns. They also have a live chat support available on their website. They can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and they try to respond to all support requests within 6 hours. You may also reach them through support@newsgrabber.nl.

Additional Products

Newsgrabber has a Nighttime Unlimited plan, which is an ideal package for users with fast internet connection that downloads at night. Priced at €3.25 per month, this plan includes all features of the regular unlimited package but with access only from 10pm to 8am.

Summary

Newsgrabber provides decent features with the plans they offer. They have fast speed and flexible pricing options, which is always a good service indicator for any Usenet provider. While they have a good range of plans, pricing could be better if you compare them to other service providers. Their website is also a little dated and could be improved. There is a need for translation to English language at every page transition and every click and most FAQs are in Dutch. But putting that aside, Newsgrabber does have an excellent customer support that is available 24/7. No matter where you are or what your time zone is, you are assured that someone will be able to assist you with your concerns.
