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.

Some good Cyber Week block deals: 

Cyber Week Sale!

5For500 gives 500G block for $5

$5 - Normally $20

Completion rates can vary for a number of reasons so today many people find it necessary to have a backup block account to supplement their unlimited account in order to improve completion. 

It is a good idea to use a secondary Usenet block account to maximize your completion rates:

Block accounts don't expire, so if they're hardly needed, then they'll last a super long time so the cost over time is minimal.

Unlimited and block accounts should work well together if they are on different backbones: Usenet Services Map.

So on this page we have listed The Best Usenet Provider Combo

Unlimited Usenet (Primary) with Suggested Block Providers

Primary Usenet Provider - Unlimited account Best Block Provider Others Suggested Block Providers

NewsHosting us $9.99/mo. or $99/yr. (UNS Holdings backbone)

Newshosting yearly plan ($99) includes a free VPN, so that appears to be a great deal if you're happy with their performance, ie completion rates, file retention, VPN quality.

I' m a big fan of Newshosting's desktop client and generally had a good experience with them. Newshosting client contains a very cool feature:

  1. Newshosting offers backup NNTP. You can add backup NNTP server if needed, a secondary Usenet provider that pulls from different servers when the articles aren't available on your primary. You can only use Tweaknews as backup provider. I got a block account of 100GB.

Newshosting backup nntp tweaknews

I recommend Tweaknews nl (Tweaknews backbone)

Tweaknews is a particularly good choice since:

You can add Tweaknews to Newshosting client.

Tweaknews is a Dutch Usenet provider - EU NNTP servers only.

Tweaknews offers a number of block accounts ranging from 10 GB up to 500 GB in size.

Tweaknews provides 2500 days binary retention.

I've tried Tweaknews block accounts and it's working perfectly so far with Newshosting unlimited account.

Perfect Usenet combo of file availability and affordable price

I have had always good completion rates with a Tweaknews backup, but have several other fill servers just in case:

UsenetExpress us - I like their 500GB block account for $20 - (decent price and frequent deals)

Usenet.Farm nl  - 15 € / 500GB - Their prices are obviously really good. They offer a 10 GB trial to try their platform out. The 10GB trial doesn't have an expiration date. 

The main differences between UsenetFarm nl, and UsenetExpress us will be price and server location. You might get faster download speeds from a news server that is geographically closer to you

Eweka nl - 7.50 € Unlimited 300 Mbit (Eweka backbone)

Eweka is our top choice for those seeking a Usenet service in Europe:

Retention on Eweka is truly great - (the only Dutch option with retention in line with Newshosting) - 3700 Days retention!. This is very handy when finding older stuff from various forums or Usenet indexers

Completion rates is excellent.

NewsgroupDirect us (UNS Holdings backbone)

Would Newsgroup block account be a good choice to use as a back up to Eweka? 

To fill missing content I would suggest Newsgroupdirect:

NewsgroupDirect offers a wide selection of block newsgroup accounts ranging from 50 GB all the way up to 2000 GB.

Newsgroupdirect offers inexpensive block accounts. For example, you can get 500 GB for $15

All of Usenet blocks include: no expiration date and the ability to share with friends.

Tweaknews nl (Tweaknews backbone) - 13 € / 100GB

UsenetExpress us (Usenetexpress backbone) - $20 / 500GB

Usenet.Farm nl  (Usenetfarm backbone) - 15 € / 500GB

Tweaknews nl - 7.50 € Unlimited (Tweaknews backbone)

Tweaknews is one of our most popular Usenet providers for many good reasons: 

Price - 7,50 €/Month for NGProvider.Com visitors

Tweaknews comes with Newsreader (UsenetWire) and a free VPN account

Speed is another quality for the service. At my current place I am on a 1 Gbit/s connection and achieve download speeds of 40 MB/sec regularly with Tweaknews.

Tweaknews speed

NewsgroupDirect us (UNS Holdings backbone)

NewsgroupDirect offers more retention than Tweaknews

NewsgroupDirect offers a wide selection of block newsgroup accounts ranging from 50 GB all the way up to 2000 GB.

UsenetExpress us (Usenetexpress backbone) - $20 / 500GB

Usenet.Farm nl  (Usenetfarm backbone) - 15 € / 500GB

ExtremeUsenet nl - 4 € / 4 Mbit (BaseIP backbone)

I especially like this Dutch Usenet Service provider for their low price. Retention is less than the US average. But when I want a file older than 1200 days I can find it with a Newsgroupdirect block account.

NewsgroupDirect us (UNS Holdings backbone)

NewsgroupDirect offers more retention than ExtremeUsenet. I'm using a Newsgroupdirect block for longer retention and to fill in completeness

Tweaknews nl (Tweaknews backbone) - 13 € / 100GB

UsenetExpress us (Usenetexpress backbone) - $20 / 500GB

Usenet.Farm nl  (Usenetfarm backbone) - 15 € / 500GB

Usenet.Farm nl - 7.95 € Unlimited (Usenet.Farm backbone)

Usenet.Farm is a Dutch Usenet service provider based in the Netherlands.

NewsgroupDirect offers more retention than Usenet.Farm. I'm using a Newsgroupdirect block for longer retention and to fill in completeness

Tweaknews nl (Tweaknews backbone) - 13 € / 100GB

UsenetExpress us (Usenetexpress backbone) - $20 / 500GB

XSNews - 10.95 € Unlimited (XSNews backbone)

You want to make a combo Usenet to reduce the number of incomplete files, so an unlimited plan with XSNews can be the primary server.
