UsenetDiscounter offers speeds up to 1000Mbit or 1Gbit according to their website. You should choose a plan that would suit best with the connection your ISP provides.

Additional Products

Summary

The good thing about UsenetDiscounter is their multiple Usenet access plans that not only provide different levels of speed and number of connections but can also be purchased for less by users who tend to burn the midnight oil. Their VPN add-on is another great service feature to add an extra layer of security for consumers.
