Vipernews Usenet review

Vipernews - Cheap Usenet Access

Vipernews is a Tier-1 provider. Vipernews is a Dutch company and operates under Dutch law. Vipernews has its own network based in The Netherlands. UsenetFarm has articles over 1,500 days old. While it does not have the best retention rate, Vipernews still manages to be a solid package for regular users.

They have lots of things to recommend them:

☞ Vipernews is one of the last few independent USENET providers offering newsgroup deals that still own and run their own servers. The main server systems for Vipernews are in The Netherlands. So, Dutch customers (and other Western Europeans) should be able to pull good speeds from their service.

☞ Vipernews is a TOP choice if a good price is your top priority. What’s more Vipernews allows account sharing (with one friend or family member).

☞ Today’s Usenet providers allow extremely rapid file transfers, so you will probably be limited by the speeds offered by your internet service provider. Vipernews is a very fast provider based in the Netherlands. Vipernews is a TOP choice if a good speed is your top priority. The maximum speed of Vipernews is around 1 Gbit/s, if that's enough for you I would recommend it.

Vipernews has several different pricing options:

▶ You can get unlimited USENET access as low as 1,79 € per month.

▶ Non-expiring and Cheap USENET Block Accounts. A block USENET access is a set allocation of download capacity. Block plans include 500 GB for 13,99 €, 1000 GB for 23,99 € and 2000 GB for 42,99 €. In my opinion the best option is a 500GB block account for just 13,99 € as a completion backup.




You can try it risk-free for 7 days, without limitations..



VIPERNEWS - Security and Privacy

Vipernews offers great privacy protection. Privacy is something that is becoming more and more important everyday on USENET.

Vipernews is headquartered in the Netherlands, one of the best jurisdictions for privacy (NTD regime, therefore making article completion better). Vipernews manually does the takedown. There isn't an automatic takedown process: takedown happens within 5 days

No personal details required at ViperNews. Vipernews only requires you to enter an e-mail address and a self-chosen password. 

Secure (SSL) connections are available. Vipernews offers free SSL encryption to secure your connections. This ensures that your ISP cannot track any of the content you download.

Logs: Vipernews does not keep a record of the read articles and the posting is enabled by default (Post logging data is retained for up to 14 days). No monitoring of your activities. Usenet neutrality is respected.

Bitcoin - Vipernews acccepts bitcoin for those who want a more anonymous payment source.


Vipernews is the best upload provider. Almost all USENET Service providers allow their users to upload. We recommend Vipernews for various reasons:

Posting access included

Block - Get the 500 GB block if you want to upload to USENET, it costs 13,99 € and your uploads don't count against you ever, so you can upload as much as you want to forever without it costing you. And the 500 GB block could used as a backup fill server. 

Vipernews remove the X-Trace header (only store internal log posting details).

Post logs older than 14 days are automatically purged.

Vipernews server farms are designed to support high-speed uploading.

Block accounts can be bought in Bitcoin. Ideal for anonymous posting.

No filter on what is posted.

TIP: If you are uploading, then always use a VPN. NordVPN is considered the best VPN on the market.


Vipernews Review – Verdict  

Vipernews offers one of the best value Usenet subscriptions around. Vipernews offers good pricing. Vipernews also follows NTD, based on the NTD-behavioural code (Dutch Law), therefore making article completion better. Mpb/s. I’ve been testing them for several months, and I’ve found their service to be reliable.

✘ ✘ ✘ However, there are also 2 downsides:

Vipernews doesn't have its own Newsreader. Of course, you can find free newsreaders. We set up a couple of newsreaders (NZBGet - Sabnzbd) and they worked without any issues. 

Vipernews has 1,500 days of retention, which is very low compared to our top USENET providers.
