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.

Tweaknews Review 2017

Tweaknews is a complete Usenet option:

  • A Dutch provider: EU Based servers are not subject to US DMCA laws. Its location is important: it answers to Dutch jurisdiction, not American. Tweaknews protected the privacy and rights of their subscribers
  • Tweaknews is a Tier-1 provider. They own their network (T1 USP) and therefore their own Message-IDs.
  • Good retention: 2500 days (most usenet Service providers in Europe offer a maximum of 1200 days retention) lets Tweaknews users search for old indexed files
  • Free Newsreader - UsenetWire provides you with a quick and easy way to find the content you’re looking for
  • VPN included for free - Tweaknews VPN lets you search for any missing files on other networks in total security. Tweaknews VPN allows Torrents. Tweaknews VPN is a popular choice for torrent downloaders looking to keep their torrent traffic anonymous. Torrent is a good file sharing protocol but a VPN is absolutely necessary for torrenting. 

The great advantage of Tweaknews compared to other European Usenet Service Providers is that TweakNews offers USENET access in both block and flat rate options. Whether you want a block for fills or flatrate accounts, Tweaknews is a good option:

  • Flat-rate accounts: The speeds for flat accounts are from 1 Mbit with 4 connections up to unlimited with 40 connections. The different speed options are great because most Dutch ISP services cap speeds. Note that all flat-rate accounts include unlimited downloads.

Tweaknews is currently offering unlimited newsgroup access to NGPro visitors for 9,99 €/Mo

  • Tweaknews can be used as a sole Usenet Service Provider. Most Usenet users still only need one Usenet Service Provider for their Usenet activities. Tweaknews lets you download everything you need.

    You can search, automate and download from UsenetWire

    You can download from the indexing 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!

    You can download via NZB from Usenet indexing sites (German users)

    Its completion level for the most recent posts is very good. If you make your downloads automatic (Couchpotato) and get files soon after they are posted then they come whole.

  • It is a real advantage to have a VPN since it allows users to have Usenet as a primary source for files, but to make use of another network if necessary. In our case, Tweaknews VPN could be using for torrenting. Usenet is better than torrents but the latter can be used if necessary. The best torrenting programme is VUZE since it has an IP Bind in its options.
  • Block accounts: A block account is for someone that doesn't download much but heavy Usenet users can also benefit from a Tweaknews block accounts. Tweaknews offers a number of block accounts ranging from 10 GB up to 500 GB in size (Speeds are capped at 100 Mbit). Users can have Unlimited account with one provider that they use as their main provider but also have a block account with Tweaknews as fill server. This way, if files or Message-IDs of it are not available to download from your primary Usenet provider, your newsreader software can be set up so that it activates your block account only if and when needed to download these missing pieces.

In the table below, we outline some ideal pairings for main and Tweaknews block accounts. You can also get another block from other Usenet Service Providers because Message-IDs of Files may be available on some Usenet backbone servers and not on others. Pick whichever works for you but make sure the block account(s) you purchase is from Usenet provider using a different Usenet backbone:

There simply is no “Best Usenet Provider”, the only way to ensure a robust setup is to utilise multiple backbones. I hope this post gives you some ideas. Note: Backbone providers indicated in (parentheses)
