Additional Products

One feature that Usenet Express has that is not available with all providers is the inclusion of a VPN account in their unlimited plans. This VPN account can also be an added feature with their block plan.

Summary

Usenet Express provides a lot of information regarding Usenet and their own service on their website. This provider offers good support both to their existing subscribers and possible new customers with the amount of material they have on their FAQs and support page. They even have a guide’s section on their site to assist users on setting up several Usenet client software.

While their plans are pretty standard and easy to grasp, their pricing could be better. Some of our top providers are able to provide the same level of service for a lower price. But although Usenet Express may not be the best or perfect provider there is, the company fairs well in most aspects of Usenet access. They are a reliable provider that competes well with others in the market.
