Newshosting has been in the USENET business over 10 years now and they run their own servers. This means you can expect a high quality of service coupled with a high level of binary retention.
Only available through a handful of Usenet related sites – you can use our signup discount links above to save money – so you can get $3/month the normal monthly pricing.
Newshosting is offering a 14 day/30 GB free trial with all plans. This is the most generous free trial that we were able to find. Subscribers will not be billed unless they keep their accounts open past the 14-day free trial or the 30GB trial limit.
Newshosting offers several plans but essentially we recommend choosing between two options either the monthly at $9.99 / month or the yearly in which you pay $99 for the year.
Block plans are not available with Newshosting. Only monthly unlimited plans.
Newshosting has servers in the USA, Europe and the Netherlands they have multiple redundant backbone connections to the Internet so speed is only limited by your own ISP if you live in the USA or Europe. Take advantage of the free trial to run your own speed test.
If you are interested in a Newshosting speed test, really the best way to do this is signup for their service and give it a try.
In our test we were able to regularly max out our 13 Mb connection thus giving about an average throughput of 1.6 MB/s. At no time in our testing did we find Newshosting to be slow.
Newshosting is a Tier 1 provider meaning that they run their own servers. In most cases, it’s best that you choose to go with a Tier 1 provider unless you get Usenet for free from your ISP.
They have 24 / 7 customer support line available over the telephone, but additionally, a live chat is also available.
Newshosting’s customer service appears to be very good, when we ask to cancel our free trial. Note Newshosting has been in business for a long time and they have an excellent reputation.
After a year of downloading, we have experienced almost no issues with completion, incomplete messages were noted 99%+ message availability appears to be more than accurate.
Furthermore, they will not release any customer information unless ordered by a court of law. Note – Newshosting is a US company and therefore under US law.
Really the best feature about Newshosting is their good price. They have a search interface but there are better free options.
In summary, we highly recommend Newshosting and they are our first choice for price performance.
