Usenet Network

Usenet is a decentralized network, it works by each Usenet server sharing its information with all the other servers on the network. This propagation across servers makes Usenet an ideal place for storing information and data of all types. If a server is damaged (Message-IDs missing), the article can still exists on every other server in the network.

HYBRID USENET SERVICES
USENET REVIEWS

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 90 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/backbones (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 end users:

  1. For the Newsgroup provider: this allows them to offer 1100 days retention at a lower price. In the Hybrid system, the Usenet server is a Tier-1 provider only for the first 90 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 backbones! 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.

Best US based hybrid Tier 1 usenet service provider

Usenet.Farm

Hybrid Usenet access

Tier-1 provider (own local retention) and resells from one 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 one other Usenet provider.

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 one other Usenet access provider that brings its retention to a total of 1100 days. Until now Usenet.Farm has not revealed the name of this reseller, due to confidentiality agreement they cannot give the name of this Tier-1 provider.

  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 their reseller. 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 two 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 two 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. Usenet is the Last Bastion of Internet Freedom!

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!)

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. Maybe they do have their own small local retention and own their own network.

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.
