Speed Test

Usenetlink Speed Test

UsenetLink performs well on speed like other Usenet providers. Their accounts can be used for up to 120 mbit/s. You should be able to max out your broadband connection but, ultimately, your speed would depend on how fast your connection is with your internet service provider.

Privacy

UsenetLink does not keep any logs of what articles you access on Usenet. Your given information is used to complete your registration. At registration you will also subscribe to UsenetLink newsletter. They do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete your order or for sending their newsletter.

There is no information on customer support or even FAQs on the UsenetLink website. But if you are a UsenetLink subscriber, you can click on their support page and log in with your username and password.

Additional Products

UsenetLink has no additional products on their services roster.

Summary

UsenetLink has some decent features that come with plans. One of their best-selling points would have to be that their packages are pretty simple to understand and that may appeal to some consumers. Their pricing is higher than a lot of providers, though. If you wish to try their service out, they allow 1 hour of free testing by just signing up with your email.
