Thread: Usenetworld.net?

  1. #1
    Anyone have any experience with them? Seems too good to be true. $19.95 for 12 months unlimited service with 110 days retention? Also you get a free copy of newsrover and every 50th subscriber gets a free ipod touch??

    It's obviously not a fly-by-night operation, as the company has been around since 2003, and is even listed on News Rover's web page of usenet providers - and has been for several years.

    http://www.newsrover.com/service.htm

    (granted, it seems nearly all the providers listed either pay for referrals or contract with News Rover to supply a newsreader with the NSP's server details hard-coded - so it's not exactly an unbiased "recommendation")

    Even though Usenetworld has been around for many years, I've not been able to find any complaints about them - or really much discussion about them at all.

    This may well be a legitimate news service, but obviously at a price of only $1.66/month for "unlimited" - it won't take many heavy downloaders to completely bust their budget.

    The service might work just fine for new users, but the big question is ... does the service get worse for heavy users? Do they throttle or cut off people who download a lot of gigs? I'm sure they will.

    I don't trust it, how could anyone offer good service for that price? Anyways, could be a reseller of NewsHosting. news-usenetworld.net pings to unlimited.newshosting.com <- that is NewsHosting's unlimited server, so the service could infact be what it says on the site. No idea how they would be able to do that though.

    Someone who has $20 to spare go ahead and sign up and see what happens, after all it's only $20 and you could win a iPod touch, hell you might even win a giant whale.
