XLned Review. Find the best Usenet Provider with UsenetReviews.org
XLned has been in the Usenet industry since 2007 and was formed because of the unpopularity of some Dutch Usenet providers at that time. Back then, pricing wasn’t that inviting. That is why XLned developed pricing options that would best suit the different needs of different users. Their subscription plans cover safe and secure Usenet access, 24/7 service, and unlimited Usenet usage. Subscribers have the option to choose the speed and number of connections that would best fit their needs. If you are not worried about long retention or you think you have no need for a lot of connections, then XLned might be for you.
XLned’s plans vary in download speeds and differ in the number of connections it allows you to make to the server. The price per month depends on the payment period you choose. Prices below are that of their 12-month subscription plan, but they also have a 1 and 6-month option.
|XL Lite||€2.24||2.5 Mbit||2|
|XL Small||€3.74||5 Mbit||2|
|XL Basic||€4.49||10 Mbit||4|
|XL Plus||€5.24||20 Mbit||8|
|XL Gold||€7.49||120 Mbit||12|

XLned servers are located in Europe, which might make them a good provider for those who don’t want to use US-based servers. They give their full list of servers to users once subscribed. The provider makes use of standard 119 and 23 ports and has SSL-enabled ports 443 or 563.
XLned offers 5 speed options ranging from 2.5 Mbit to 120 Mbit depending on the plan you avail. And although they do not offer as much connections as some other providers, it is important to remember that more connections do not necessarily make your connection faster. XLned speed options are set based on whatever their subscriber needs, making it enough for the user.
XLned has SSL encryption built into their servers preventing anyone from seeing what the subscriber is downloading. The SSL also ensures that your traffic isn’t throttled by your internet service provider.
