My current usenet subscription is up for renewal and I found this deal on Reddit. According to the rep it's for a limited time and could last for up to a week.

This promo is for the full plan, 50 SSL connections, 3900+ days retention, unlimited bandwidth.

This special will renew automatically at this price until cancelled. Existing customers who want to take advantage of the deal, please contact support to be switched.

I took up this deal and a test download flooded my 100 meg connection.

    Whats it do?

      It's an email like messaging system that users can upload files to. The files are stored on very high speed servers where you can upload and download as much as you want at full speed although you will add 10 to 20% in filesize to upload for error correction.

      There is an expiry date for the uploads which is which is currently more than 3000 days.

      So for example you can pay 30 bucks a year and have unlimited full speed backups for your data.

          TL;DR no need VPN

          You don't really have to have a VPN for it because the only place that sees your IP is these guys. Torrents on the other hand you have to grab from many people and seed to some people too and your IP will also be listed via DHT which makes it very easy for people to see what you are downloading.

          Also if you look at their sales blurb:

          Every account comes with 50 SSL connections to prevent snooping and throttling from ISPs. We keep no logs of what you access. Security via encryption, privacy via policy.

          So you have SSL which technically protects you from your ISP snooping through MITM, ninja doesn't log anything so they don't know what you download either. Obviously if you're doing something HIGHLY illegal like uploading VERY ILLEGAL things to Usenet then you'd need a VPN paid with bitcoin and untracable email registered through a randomized TOR node which you access through a public wifi hotspot with no security cameras nearby with your cell phone ditched at home etc etc lol.

      I love trying to explain what usenet is at BBQs. People slowly walk away and don't talk to me again.

        Hahaha same, I give up once I say you need to pay for it. They become instantly disinterested

      • +1 vote

        They ask so many questions about it and genuinely want to know the answer. Then as soon as you start explaining, their eyes glaze over.

        They become a lot more interested if offered Plex access lol

    Keep in mind that this is another Highwinds/Omicron provider.

    Great price. Would definitely jump on this if I didn't already have 2 years unlimited for $55 from usenetexpress locked in.

    The Ninja is great. No dramas with take downs for me.

    If you're not sure what this is, Usenet is simply a place where Linux enthusiasts share various Linux operating system versions ( aka distros )

    Can someone compare this with this other link? (I don't know enough to be able to do that)

  •  

    Didn't know usenet still exists! Is this 1995?

  •  

    I just upgraded and applied the code when upgraded. It went through fine. Now I am paid until 2021 though

    •  

      EDIT:

      Interpreted this as you were an existing customer upgrading initially.

      I could see the yearly plan listed until I logged in, now I'm redirected to my dashboard when I try to go to this deal.

      I may have to contact support as the OP said.

        Go to Modify Plan at the bottom of the page, apply Promo code superb250. I've extended my subscription to Dec 2020 now. This is an awesome deal.

    So this is a dropbox, just better and cheaper?

      Nah, wouldn't describe it like that. Search reddit for answers

      Most people don't get this to store files. They want to get files. The 3900+ days retention means you could get very old files (or another way to look at it - hard to get files).

      Also, the SSL connections - ISPs generally cannot trace these. So, download files and you don't want other people to trace your activities - you can figure the rest out.

    Thanks…gonna give it a try.

    what's a good newsgroup reader? any recommendations?

    This is a good deal. Have been using NewsDemon as my main for 2 years. With sonarr/radarr I hardly touch my block accounts.

  •  

    Damn there was another usenet providers providing lifetime access.

  •  

    Is there much 4K HDR content on Usenet?

  •  

    Had monthly easynews for 15 years, worth the change? Paying approx $11/m for unlimited nzb access (no file browser).

  •  

    Is a usenet subscription going to be decent for a Nvidia Shield entertainment device? I currently use TV Zion (Popcorn Time-style app) with Real Debrid (unrestricted downloader service) and that works pretty well, but I'm open to change if usenet can provide a similar or better service!

  •  

    Good to see newsgroups still going strong. Imagine same applies for 0-day stuff? Feel a little bit sorry for some that may inadvertently buy and not wrap their head around it.

  •  

    I have been on usenetserver for 5 years now and never really shopped around. They are pretty expensive at near 3x cost per year but it comes with a very good VPN among a couple other things, which I use regularly. UNS never missed a beat for me, tempting to switch with this though. But still got 4 months on year plan.. hmm

      Uns user here… I've never gotten great speed out of it… Jumped on this and it absolutely flies! Might be time to ditch UNS (for me anyway)

      •  

        Yeah I will have to give it a go, sometimes UNS goes quick but others it tanks for no reason. I have it on my Pi that’s always running, but, it would be good to maximise my connection.
        Hmm decisions decisions

        Jumped on the deal, will try when home later

        •  

          speeds area bout the same in comparison. I am on cable and can vary wildly as well. But a solid saving in comparison so I will probably stick with this lot

        Maxing out my FTTP every time on 50/20 on ABB, no issues whatsoever. Make sure you have the amount of connections set up right. I think the best I got from them was around 7/8MBps when I was on a 100/40 plan with Telecube. Varied a lot with them though where as with ABB it's constant.

    Good tutorial for those who want to get started:

      in a nutshell:
      1) signup to a newsgroup service, e.g. Newsgroup Ninja
      2) signup to an indexer - these guys index all the shareware :P files
      3) use Nzbget as a download client (most lightweight/featured packed)
      4) Download anything except Apps. A lot of 0-day exploits get passed thru App Downloads (0-day means AV vendors won't even have signatures for them)
      5) Make sure you update to the latest Winrar/Bandizip because there was a major vulnerability where just opening up a zip/rar file would execute the virus (fixed in Feb 2019 release of Bandizip/Winrar.

    IRC XDCC bots and newsgroups is all I used for several years, a long while ago - considering giving them a go again, i lost faith when all the indexers got shut down, nzbsrus and a number of other free sites, binsearch is just too painful! Can anyone PM me any decent indexers pls? Also keen to know what IRC servers & chans still serving up good stuff, amazed it's still going!

  •  

    So what type of things do people download? Movies, games, TV Shows, books

  •  

    Geez I wish I saw this a week ago, forgot about my auto renew of newshosting and they charged me $145aud for a year :/

  •  

    Thanks Op, have always wanted to try using Usenet.

  •  

    I'm waiting for my current newshosting plan to end. Shame this'll only last a week

    A great deal. I'm with newsdemon (they use the same backbone) on a good grandfathered deal otherwise I'd switch.

    For those talking about "takedowns", it's as much to do with the indexing service you use as anything else. I use 2 private indexers and they are not equal. Stuff is taken down on one site and not the other, despite indexing from the same Highwinds backbone.

    •  

      Hi, do you mind pming me the indexers you use?

    •  

      Both NewsDemon and Ninja are on the same backbone anyway, price is the main reason to choose one over the other.

      Which indexers are you using (PM?). The main one I was using closed down recently and I'm looking around for replacements.

    •  

      Hey redcreek200,

      Could you please pm me the private indexers you use?

  •  

    Thanks! I can finally switch away from my ancient Cyber Monday $5/month deal with ThunderNews - stoked!

    Edit: any preference to which server to use out of Australia?

  •  

    Awesome. Finally pulled the trigger on getting a provider and I am happy with my initial test download, need to explore more to take advantage of it all more efficiently.

  •  

    Definitely a good indexer is the key or get the files fast. I'm a cheapskate so I just use the free ipv6 server which has never let me down. Newsbin although ugly as arse seems to be rock solid at pulling files,especially ones that are rar'd a little differently to get around take downs.
