☛ Newsgroupdirect performance ☚

Newsgroupdirect is a good USENET service provider:

Tier-1 provider - Newsgroupdirect is a US based Tier 1 USENET service provider. Newsgroupdirect has one server farm in the US.

Retention rate – NewsgroupDirect offers over 3,500+ days of binary retention. Newsgroupdirect uses a mix of their own local retention and offers cache retention through a partner (UsenetExpress).

Completion rate - Newsgroupdirect boasts a 99.9% completion rate, which is the industry standard. You will most likely need access to an indexer. If you combine Newsgroupdirect with obfuscated files, you are all set.

Servers - Nesgroupdirect provides high-speed access to server farms only in the US.

Security and privacy - Newsgroupdirect considers security and privacy. The company will never share your information with outside parties or track your downloads. Newsgroupdirect comes with 256-bit secure connections. Newsgroupdirect also does not monitor downloads or maintain log files: "We do not and cannot log what you download. ."

Speed - Newsgroupdirect offers the 100 concurrent connections with each package. So regardless of location (in the US), you should be able to max out your broadband connection. OUR TIP: You can easily max out your connection with around 20 concurrent connections.

Newsreader - Newsgroupdirect doesn’ t have its own newsreader, so you’ ll have to use a free Newsreader to download binaries off of the server.

Newsgroupdirect is a solid USENET provider. If you do not need extremely high retention times combined with great prices you should always consider Newsgroupdirect. The only downside is that they offer server farms only in the US. Newshosting has higher retention and more server locations.
