UseNeXT is an excellent Usenet provider. It has an attractive price and unlimited downloads with nearly unlimited speed. Besides that, you can now test it for free.
UseNeXT was founded in 2004 by the German company Aviteo Ltd. In recent years, much has changed at UseNeXT; retention keeps growing and they introduced new packages with nearly unlimited speed.
Consequently, it is one of the cheapest Usenet providers with a high retention time.
Price / Packages
UseNeXT offers unique packages which differentiates them from the rest of our reviews. You only pay €7,95/month with a 12-month membership. It very well suits users that want maximum speed and high retention for a decent price.
- Unlimited download volume
- Download speed up to 800 Mbit/s
- High retention time of 3000 days
UseNeXT has several payment methods: iDeal, credit card and PayPal. iDeal, however, is only possible for sign ins from the Netherlands.
Connectivity & Configuration
- Address: usenext.com
- Ports: 119, 443 of 563 (SSL)
- Connections: 30
- Retention time: 3000 days
You can use the above parameters to download with Spotnet or another news reader. UseNeXT recommends the Tangysoft newsreader, which offers several special features:
- Preview of some content
- Comment and evaluation system
- Newsgroups bookmark management
- Slideshow including Cooliris-support
Downloading works well and you can search the newsgroups easily. CPU usage is rather high, so if this bothers you there are other more efficient newsreaders.
With access to six server parks in Europe and the US, you can benefit from the highest speed of up to 800 Mbit/s. With only 5 connections we reached the maximum Ziggo (200 Mbit/s) during downloading.
This is an amazing speed and one of UseNeXT’s strong points.
Perhaps, you would like to try out Usenet, then take also the free trials of other providers into account.
Retention & Download retention
The download completion is higher than most of the other providers. But of course, the best thing to do is to test this yourself free of charge, because our downloads are not necessarily your downloads.Old files did not download so quick, so this is something that they can still improve.
A retention of eight years and one quarter is very good. That is a retention that is only offered by top Usenet providers.
Overall UseNeXT is a perfect choice if you want to download with virtually unlimited speed, for the lowest price. Therefore test it, two weeks free of charge, to determine for yourself if it suits you, before you pay.
- Download speeds up to 800 Mbit/s
- Hoge retention of 3000 days
- Very attractive price
- Higher download completion than most of the competition
- Download speed of old files is low
Summary: UseNeXT is an excellent Usenet provider. It has an attractive price and unlimited downloads with nearly unlimited speed. Besides that, you can now test it for free.
