Configuration Information

Speed Test

Since Z51 plans are differentiated by speed and number of connections, your speed would depend on the package you choose. How fast you download and upload also would depend on your internet service provider. Make sure you select a plan that would not exceed the speed of your broadband connection.

Summary

Z51 is a solid Usenet provider that offers competitive packages in terms of their pricing and multiple speed and connection options. They are a good option for users who might not want to use the Usenet service that much and would go for a non-renewing plan. Their multiple speed and connection options would benefit users that have different levels of broadband connection. And if you are not that convinced yet with how well their service is, you can try them out for a massive 30 days. That should be enough time to know if Z51 is a right fit for you.
