UseNeXT Review

Several Usenet providers are competing for the favour of users. This review presents UseNeXT, the largest European provider and a client which has already scored well in various specialist magazines. But how did it do in our report?

The free newsreader offered by UseNeXT enables even those with no prior knowledge to access the Usenet easily. Searching for and downloading information takes place intuitively.

The direct download via the UseNeXT servers makes it possible for users to fully exploit their Internet connection and download files at maximum speed. This high download speed is secured via the eight server farms operated in the US and Europe.

There are over 60,000 newsgroups enabling access to over 2,500 terabytes of data. Files remain on the servers for 976 days, whereas the retention time for messages is 1,000 days.

Security also plays a major role in the Usenet. 256-bit SSL encryption ensures security of access. Log-on data is also transmitted in encrypted form.

Get a free UseNeXT trial and discover the benefits of highspeed access to the Usenet

UseNeXT offers free 14-day trial access with no strings attached to all those wishing to test the Usenet client. The so-called “Hybrid Rate” offers the user two download options. “Highspeed Mode” enables Downloads up to 10 gigabytes at unlimited speed. The “Free Volume Mode” provides a download volume of 300 gigabytes at up to 2,000 kbit/s. Users may switch between the two download options at any time.

The advantage of this trial agreement is that you can seamlessly continue to download files once the test period has expired. There is no need to extend the agreement. If you do not wish to extend, however, you will need to cancel before the 14 days have passed. The cancellation process is convenient and merely involves a click in the user’s personal member area.

Once the trial period has expired, there is a choice of various volume packages (30, 80 or 250 GB/month) offering unlimited download speed. Once the download volume has been exhausted, users may continue to download in “Free Volume Mode” – at up to 2,000 kbit/s.
