One of the good things theCubeNet has going for them is the variety of plans they have. The provider has unlimited, metered and block account Usenet plans and VPN plans for user security.

Their unlimited plans vary in number of connections but cover everything else like their high retention period, use of servers, SSL encryption and 24/7 support.
