Top 10 best Usenet services of 2017

USENET PROVIDERS
USENET REVIEWS

TIER-1 Provider

Backbone: UNS Holdings

Newshosting is the best News Service Provider since it is the only one that offers Usenet and a Newsreader of this high quality.

  • Access to Usenet: Unlimited Newsgroups. Best retention on the market, 30 SSL connections, 2 servers in Europe (Holland and Germany) and 1 in the USA. The Usenet servers are run in house because Newshosting is a Tier-1 provider. There are no limits on speed or data with Newshosting. The unlimited package really is unlimited. No hidden barriers, NO INVISIBLE CAP.

  • A free Newsreader, perfectly adapted to download binary files: NZB, search engine, updated Newsgroups with headers, automatic search.
Why is Newshosting the best Newsgroup service provider in 2017?

Newshosting is the best Usenet service provider 2017 because it suits all Usenet users whatever their download methods. Newshosting is everything a Usenet customer could ask for, be they a complete novice (New to Usenet and looking for recommendations) or veteran user. Usenet is the only network with such diverse ways of referencing and downloading. Whatever you need, Newshosting will work for you!

  1. You can search, automate and download from one newsreader from Newshosting.

  2. You can automate your film downloads with Couchpotato. The 3 servers from Newshosting will let you use the maximum of your bandwidth.

  3. You can download from the referencing done by the Spotnet protocol. Spotnet is excellent, their referencing functions through the Usenet network and its Text newsgroups. With Spotnet Usenet is enough all by itself without the internet!

  4. You need Newshosting if you still have incomplete files. It is not impossible to complete files on usenet. You are normally always able to reconstitute a file from the Message-IDs left on all the USPs over different networks. How?
    1. Use the three connections from Newshosting to connect to 3 server farms. From server farms (news-us.newshosting.com + news-nl.newshosting.com + news-de.newshosting.com) you can get more than 50% of the remaining parts of a file
    2. Get block accounts from other backbones. A selection of backbones is essential. Each backbone is subject to the same file takedowns but they will each have different remaining parts. You just need to put them all together to make the complete file.
        • Usenet.farm backbone: 500 GB / 15 €
        • UsenetExpress backbone: 500 GB / $20
        • XSNews backbone: 100 GB / 34.95 €
        • Tweaknews backbone: 100 GB / 13 €
        • => These block accounts are the best that exist: the cheapest and the most likely to complete your unlimited package from Newshosting.

Best Usenet Provider 2017

Eweka

TIER-1 Provider

Backbone: Eweka

Eweka is the best Dutch Newsgroup provider – Best European Usenet

  • Eweka is based in Holland. They are our favourite Dutch USP thanks to their 3000 days retention (triple that of other Dutch or German USPs). Eweka is also under the NTD-behavioural code and not the DMCA. (The main difference is in executing the demand which takes longer and is less automatic in Europe).

Eweka packages:

  1. Unlimited Usenet at 300 mbit for €7.50/month. It is the best possible price for Usenet access at this speed.
  2. Eweka allows a shared connection on a 50 Mbit at €7.50/month. Split the cost of a Usenet package between 2 or 3 people for a steal!
  • If you need a Usenet servers based in Holland then Eweka will be perfect for you!

    I recommend using Eweka with the Spotnet protocol and the Spotnet 2.0 newsreader

Best European Usenet 2017 (No DMCA)

TIER-1 Provider

Backbone: UNS Holdings

UsenetServer has unlimited access with SSL included at $.95.40/year with days of binary retention. UsenetServer is a good quality server. It is the best annual price for an excellent Newsgroup.

UsenetServer has two interesting options:

  1. Global Search 2.0 is an NZB search engine. Practical since the NZB search engines don't search for days retention anymore! The internal search engine from UsenetServer lets you search for days retention. And to create as many NZB as you need. And NZB created by Global Search 2.0 guarantees that the files are present on UsenetServer.
  2. A VPN is included for free with the annual package. This VPN is NO LOGs, includes 17 countries and connection programme with OpenVPN. With the VPN from UsenetServer you can download Torrents, share p2p (from Dutch and Swedish servers), Emule, direct downloading (cyberlockers)

UsenetServer lets you download everything you need for one simple rate of $95.40/year.

It is still possible to only have one NSP (News service provider) for downloading. You don't need to have lots of USPs from different backbones to download on Usenet. You don't need to subscribe to a lot of Newznab indexers or to automate your downloads. I have tested lots of versions and it is still possible to have one USP like UsenetServer for all my downloads, without any problems.

USENET - 90% of the time this method works no problem. My files were completed. I just needed to check out the different Usenet indexers at regular intervals (every two day) and put in the 3 addresses from UsenetServer (NL – DE – US) into NZBGet.

  1. I sign up for free to several indexers to find out the name of the posted file. NZBGeek and Usenet-Crawler are the most popular indexes currently
  2. I look for the NZB on the search engine from UsenetServer (If you need an alternative NZB search try Binsearch - Another good public search is NZBIndex)
  3. I download the NZB on my grabber: NZBGET

An old-school Usenet provider

VPN + TORRENTS - In some cases the file can't be found on the Usenet network. So I search for it on torrents. Usenet is better than torrents but the latter can be used if necessary. On the condition that you download torrents with the VPN from UsenetServer and with the VUZE client for its IP Bind. This VPN is useful in case of absent or incomplete files on Usenet. The major disadvantage of torrents is the inherent insecurity of the technology: Download Torrents only via VPN

I recommend UsenetServer for anyone that doesn't want to worry about completion, Usenet automation tools, anyone who doesn't want to pay extra for a Usenet indexer to have more APIs. .... In fact I love UsenetServer as I don't accumulate NSPs from different backbones for completion or to find the NSP that is not subject to different jurisdictions (DMCA or NTD).

For $95.40/year I get EVERYTHING: my Usenet access with is useful in 90% of cases. And UsenetServer VPN does the rest. Usenet is still a major, high-performance network. UsenetServer proves it!

A comprehensive Usenet solution

EasyNews

TIER-1 Provider

Backbone: UNS Holdings

Easynews is the most under-estimated Usenet server. Its technical capabilities and its offers are high quality. As a result: their most complete package is more expensive than the average but you get your money's worth. Easynews is for people that want to make the most of Usenet !

1- The most important tool from Easynews is that they offer three ways to access newsgroups:

    Webinterface Web interface (includes an NZB search engine, a zip manager and an image viewer) that lets you access the Usenet network from your browser using the HTTP protocol. The The web interface is totally ergonomic and easy to use. The search engine on this web interface is the best of all the NZB search engines

    Easynews also has unlimited access to newsgroups in NNTP mode (via newsreader). This is the classic way, with and address and newsreader.

    Easynews is also available for tablets and smartphones. Using a web interface on the tablet is amazing. There are also official Android apps. Easynews is the only news service provider that has compatible apps for viewing images, downloading, searching.

2- We also recommend Easynews as the USP that should be installed on all your devices: Kodi, NAS synology, Raspberry pi, Couchpotato. Whenever you need to install an automatic or complex configuration I turn to Easynews (their tech support always helps in case of problems). For installing Usenet on Kodi I used Easynews since they have an add-on available that works wonders.

3- Easynews VPN is offered for free with their many package: BIG GIG PLAN at $29.94/month.

The best all-round Usenet server: web interface – NNTP – apps - VPN

ExtremeUsenet

Usenet Reseller

Backbone: Base-IP

ExtremeUsenet is a Dutch Usenet provider, reseller from the BaseIP backbone. BaseIP resells its network infrastructure (Usenet servers – peering – feed) to different Usenet providers. ExtremeUsenet is the best Usenet access from this backbone.

ExtremeUsenet is one of the cheaper Dutch NSPs (News Service Providers) thanks to their fair rates based on your connection speed or your downloading hours.

ExtremeUsenet has a whole range of Usenet packages. This diversity is their main advantage:

  1. Classic Usenet rate where the price is calculated according to the speed - so a 4 mbit package at €4/month. And the annual rate is even cheaper: €38.40!

  2. Discount rates even cheaper than that: 12mbit at €2.50/month. The only condition is to use predefined hours. The time slots offered are not just a few hours per day either!

  3. All Usenet packages can be shared. ALL of them, even the €2.50 rate. Sharing is limited to the number of connections. So if the packages allows 4connections then 4 different IPs can connect.

The advantage of ExtremeUsenet is the range of packages. ExtremeUsenet is good for lots of different kinds of Usenet users:

  1. If you want just Usenet access, then the rates are calculated according to your connection speed. During my tests all the speeds were respected.

  2. If you want cheap Newsgroup access without any frills: no newsreader included. No free VPN. And all packages can be shared, reducing the costs.

  3. If you want a multifeed Usenet access for higher completion despite DMCA and NTD. Because of its low prices and its Dutch backbone different from those from Eweka or Newshosting, we recommend adding ExtremeUsenet. It integrates easily into a future MultiFeeds formula. The point of multifeeds is to add up several USPs to get all the Message-IDs for one file from different sources.

Its three flaws are: only 1200 days retention, no Paypal and no VPN ( p2p traffic)

Conclusion: we recommend ExtremeUsenet if you need a Dutch News Service provider to complete incomplete files or to access Usenet for a low price. For example ExtremeUsenet has an original formula (Voordeel Pakketten) that gives you access at certain times (midnight to midday or 2h00 til 14h00 or 4h00 to 16h00) with an amazing discount: 12 mbit for only €2.50

One of the most complete Usenet providers in the EU

UsenetBucket

Usenet Reseller

Backbone: XSNews

UsenetBucket is a Usenet reseller from the backbone XSNews, which supplies a lot of Usenet resellers.

UsenetBucket is the best of the XSNews resellers for different reasons:

  1. First, they offer the best prices of all XSNews resellers!!! If you want a Dutch Usenet provider (UsenetBucket is based in Holland and uses servers from a Dutch reseller) to complete missing files or to reduce costs then get the cheapest!. And you'll get the same technical characteristics as the other XSNews resellers.
    And the prices are based on our download speed. The faster it is the more you pay. This goes from €2.95 for the basic Bucket rate (10Mbit/s) to €12.95 for the ultimate Bucket rate at 400 MBit/s.

  2. UsenetBucket is one of the new Usenet providers that can guarantee confidentiality to its members. Usenetbucket has a series of tools to keep you anonymous:
      1. You can use different anonymous payment methods like Bitcoin
      2. No personal info needed. Just an email address – you can enter a temporary one.
      3. No LOGS are kept, no monitoring of your activities. With UsenetBucket you are sure of Usenet network neutrality.
      4. Usenetbucket is based in Holland, a country that respects internet users' rights.

  3. If you are still deliberating, UsenetBucket has a free trial offer of 5GB so you can check and get to know the service. Afterward you need to click on the Extra Bucket button in the Subscriptions tab to sign up to a paid package (Basic – Comfort – Ultimate).On the user space you will find the Promotions tab to find any discount codes (with ways to win them).
Great pricing, good retention and the use of the XSNews backbone makes UsenetBucket a top high quality choice for Usenet.

Reputable EU newsgroup provider 

Usenet.Farm

Hybrid Usenet access

Tier-1 provider (own local retention) and resells from their partner backup feeds.

Usenet.Farm is a new kind of Usenet provider. We call it a Hybrid Usenet provider since Usenet.Farm is both a Tier-1 provider (has its own network and retention) and resells from two other Usenet providers.

What is the hybrid formula from Usenet.Farm? What are the technical specifications? The advantages of this kind of hybrid Usenet access?

  1. Usenet.Farm has its own network based in Holland. Its retention is slightly more than 30 days. In this category Usenet.Farm is a Tier-1 Provider. But Usenet.Farm is also a reseller for two other Usenet access providers that brings its retention to a total of 1100 days. Until now Usenet.Farm has not revealed the name of these resellers, due to confidentiality agreement they cannot give the name of these Tier-1 providers.

  2. It works very simply and clearly for the user: when a user wants to download a file, they first search for it and download it from Usenet.Farm servers. The servers that belong to Usenet.Farm are always used as a first priority. If the file doesn't exist on their retention then Usenet.Farm will find it on one of their two resellers. We know that 75% of traffic goes through Usenet.Farm's own servers.

  3. They have lots of things to recommend them:
      1. With one price you get three Usenet networks with a transparent operating system. And the prices aren't that high either, and both packages can be shared (15GB bloc for only €15 – unlimited access for €7.95/month).
      2. This adds to the chances of completing certain files. Usenet.Farm can complete a file from three different networks. Usenet is a very decentralised network, since you can download different parts (Message-IDs) of the same file on several networks without causing any problems. Completion via Message-IDs is a great option since it means you can get parts of files from different backbones.

Usenet.farm is also a good Usenet provider that respects its users' confidentiality:

  1. Usenet.Farm is based in Holland so they are subject to NTD. There isn't an automatic takedown process: takedown happens within 5 days (Depending on the complexity of the report and the reported content the analysis may take up to five business days)

  2. It is possible (and you are encouraged) to pay in Bitcoin.

  3. No personal info needed on signup.

  4. Very clear Logs policy: No LOGS, no monitoring of your activities, no filter on what is posted. Usenet net neutrality is respected.

Today Usenet users need two things: high completion and respect for confidentiality. Usenet.Farm meets expectations for both. Their success as a Usenet provider can prove it! It's up to you to test it out with 10GB for free (usage is not limited in this period!)

Best European Hybrid Usenet access

USENETEXPRESS

Hybrid Usenet access

Tier-1 provider (own local retention) and resells from their partner backup feeds.

UsenetExpress is a hybrid Usenet servers based in the USA. The backbone that belongs to UsenetExpress with 30 days retention is based in North America. The two resellers that offer the rest of the retention – to make up 1100 days – are based in Europe and the USA, one in each. The source of the retention is not known as the articles were being served from archival/cache servers

The hybrid system set up by some Usenet service providers is very popular at the moment. The system was created in order to improve completion for file available on Usenet by automating completion of Message-IDs.

Completion through Message-IDs

Usenet is a totally decentralised network on which all the Usenet servers are linked between each other. All the servers share files equally as they are posted. So a file, X, containing 49 parts (Message-IDs) posted on server A is then instantly available on all the other networks (server B + server C + server D + ...)

When is a file gets a takedown request (from DMCA or NTD) the Newsgroup provider removes enough Message-IDs that the file can no longer be used, but never the totality of the parts. This is why, by connecting to different Usenet servers you can download all the Message-IDs still available and reconstruct a file, even if none of the providers has the whole file by itself (all 49 Message-IDs).

A system that lets you access several networks (backbones) is very useful for both the Newsgroup providers and the users:

  1. For the Newsgroup provider: this allows them to offer 1000 days retention at a lower price. In the Hybrid system, the Usenet server is a Tier-1 provider only for the first 30 days retention. The rest is rented from one or two other exterior Usenet providers. Normally 75% of downloads do come from the provider's own retention.
  2. For the user: they can access three different networks with needing to sign up for three different Usenet providers! Completion is the most important part of Usenet. When you download a file on a newsgroup it is divided into pieces (Message-IDs). Sometimes you are missing a piece (Message-IDs) on one server but the missing pieces are present on another network. This is why UsenetExpress can help you complete some files. By downloading via UsenetExpress you can download 30% of the parts (Message-IDs) on the UsenetExpress servers and the other 70% from the two resellers! This completion via Message-IDs is at the base of the hybrid system.

The hybrid system from UsenetExpress works very well: all our tests were conclusive. This greatly improves the completion of some files.

NEWSGROUPDIRECT

Usenet Reseller

Backbone: UNS Holdings

 

Newsgroupdirect offers several different types of packages (limited, unlimited and block). But only the block accounts from Newsgroupdirect are worth the money. Newsgroupdirect has the best block accounts of all the Newsgroup providers.

What is a block account?

A block account is when you buy a predefined number of GB. After that, you are free to use them as you like, there is no time limit to use them up. No automatic top-up – once the GB have all been downloaded, the package is finished.

What are the advantages of a block account?

  1. You only pay what you use, and block accounts can be shared between several people = a good way to discover Newsgroups for a low price!
  2. Block accounts can help you complete a file by offering you some of the missing Message-IDs missing from your main server.

This last factor drives the renewed interest in Usenet providers that offer block accounts. People that are worried about completion of certain files need to know about the advantage of using block accounts for completion via Message IDs. Good Usenet providers (ones with 3 servers: US – NL – DE) still retain 60-70% of the parts (Message-IDs) from a file after it is officially taken down. The file is unusable in this state. But if you find 30-40% remaining on another network (backbone) then your file has all the parts to complete it.

Why get a block account from Newsgroupdirect?

  1. They have the lowest prices on the market. And Newsgroupdirect often has good promotions, during which you can get up 1TB for only 40% !
  2. Newsgroupdirect has three servers so each one has different Message-IDs. This can seem unbelievable but when a takedown request happens the parts that are removed are never the same ones on each server even from the same provider. Each servers has different Message-IDs left on it. Adding them together you can easily get to 60-70%. For this you need a block account from Usenet provider with 3 servers (USA – NL – DE) so you increase your chances of completing files.

Which Usenet providers are compatible with Newsgroupdirect in order to set up a MultiFeed for full Message-ID completion?

There is only one rule to respect: don't use a provider that has the same backbone as NewsgroupDirect. Since all the Usenet servers from one backbone have the same files, articles, parts

  1. Eweka backbone - Perfectly compatible. Eweka has an NTD takedown process. Newsgroupdirect will complete it with other Message-IDs from its three servers.

  2. Base-IP backbone: the best Usenet server from this network is ExtremeUsenet. As well as completing any remaining pieces, Newsgroupdirect completes very old files since they have 3 times the retention.

  3. XSNews backbone: the best Usenet server from this network is Usenetbucket. As well as completing any remaining pieces, Newsgroupdirect completes very old files since they have 3 times the retention.

  4. Usenet.Farm backbone: as well as owning its network, Usenet.Farm also has 2 resellers. With Newsgroupdirect you have up to 6 servers (3 from Usenet.Farm + 3 from Newsgroupdirect)

  5. UsenetExpress backbone: they also own their network, plus a Dutch network and servers based in the USA. We think they are the same as the ones from Newsgroupdirect, but they can be used together since UsenetExpress will download from its US server, on your unlimited package, and the block account from Newsgroupdirect will only be used to complete missing Message-IDs available on the European servers (Holland and Germany).

  6. Astraweb backbone: Astraweb has two servers: ones based in USA and ones based in Europe. It's up to you use the two addresses to increase the network completion. Newsgroupdirect will add three servers: NL – DE – US.

The King Of Newsgroup Block Accounts

USENETLINK

Usenet Multi-Resellers

Backbones: All major Usenet backbones

UsenetLink is resellers of many Usenet service providers.

UsenetLink is a relatively unknown Usenet Service Provider with the simple motto: "Our idea is to build a more complete version of Usenet again".

As they know that completion is an essential factor for certain users, UsenetLink has decided to resell from several backbones.

UsenetLink makes the principle of completing Message-IDs automatic, from its address. UsenetLink combine a multitude of different Usenet providers into one single: When you connect to their address, UsenetLink will search for the file or its separate parts (Message-IDs) wherever it is still available!

The main advantage is to automate the search for different parts (Message-IDs) on the biggest backbones in Usenet. The disadvantage is that UsenetLink is more expensive than most News Service Providers. You can test UsenetLink for free over an hour with an email address to get an idea of UsenetLink's quality.
