Data Transfer Limit and Speed
UsenetServer offers customers with unlimited data transfer access with all of its plans. It also provides up to 20 concurrent connections to maximize your connection speed (for High Speed Plus Plans).
Their servers connect to the internet with a speed of over 30 Gbit/s, which makes them capable of handling enormous amount of traffic at any time of the day.
We also checked their website for any prohibition on account sharing, and there is no ruling about it. Thus, it may or may not be allowed (officially).
UsenetSever has peering connection to all the main Usenet servers and most of the minor ones, giving you access to over 100,000 Usenet discussion groups all over the world.
Free VPN and SSL Connection
UsenetSever provides its customers with a free 256-bit SSL connection to protect their data and information. Furthermore, annual subscribers of High Speed Plans obtain a free VPN service bundled with their subscription (monthly plan subscribers has an option to add an additional fee to include VPN access in their subscription plans).
UseNetServer has been around a long time. Their pricing and retention make the service an exceptional value. That along with their reliability and UNS global search feature helped them earn a 2016 NGR Editors Choice award. We highly recommend UseNetServer to anyone who enjoys downloading from Usenet.
