Speed Test

Usenetnow Speed Test

UseNetNow.Net has one server in the US and two in Europe (Amsterdam and Germany). They perform well in terms of speed. Like other Usenet providers, they offer speed that will most likely only be limited by the speed provided by your internet service provider.

SSL Encryption is included in any of the plan users select from UseNetNow.Net. This provides a secure and safe access to Usenet.

The provider does not monitor any user activity in their system. The newsgroups you visit or what you download is not logged. Account information is also not shared with any third party except for processors who help in the subscription process. Any information about a user is not released to law enforcement unless presented with a valid warrant.

Additional Products

UseNetNow.Net is not offering any additional products included in their plans or any other Usenet-related service.

Summary

UseNetNow.Net provides basic features included in the plans they offer. While their pricing and features aren’t bad, they are not as competitive as other Usenet providers. Their subscription and non-renewing packages are very simple and straightforward which may seem appealing at first but there are other Usenet providers out there who would offer additional features like newsreader inclusion or VPN add-ons. Some even have block account options, which might be better than UseNetNow’s 7-day plan. Plus, these other providers would even have a free trial period or money-back guarantee that would allow users to initially experience their service.

Overall, UseNetNow.Net’s simple price plan may be their best asset. It has no frills, no complicated information and very basic offerings. But what may be their greatest asset, might be what would make some subscribers go for other Usenet providers.
