Cheap Usenet Access

Our page on "Newsgroup Cheap access" explains all the best deals in more detail. To benefit from a price even lower than $10 you should follow our advice:

  1. Wait for an amazing deal (Usually 20-30% off ). These offers normally appear in November (around Black Friday after Thanksgiving) or at the end of the year. Sometimes events like valentine day or kings day as used as an pretext as well. NGProvider publishes all its Usenet promotions on its main page and its twitter account. The best reductions are always around Black Friday / Cyber Monday.

  2. Take out a longer subscription - more than a month. Best of all is a yearly subscription - saving up to 20% off the monthly rate!. The subscription length is key. Subscribing annually can save you a lot (Annual subscriptions that cost less than 12 consecutive months). Same for block accounts: large block = low price overall.

  3. Think about sharing your Usenet access as long as it is allowed by your Usenet Service provider.

  4. Think about using special rates for certain times of day: “night-time accounts” are cheaper.

Here are the 5 best cheap Usenet providers on the market today. Usenet can be cheap, fast, and provide as much content as you could ever want.
