Looking For A New Usenet Service

Postby Snorph » Sat Feb 24, 2018 2:55 am

I have giganews, but it's 29.99 and includes 2 VPN's which I like, but, is there any better service or price wise something better? Thanks...

We've got a list of preferred providers at http://www.usenettools.net/news.htm - all of them are cheaper than Giganews.

We have special pricing with UsenetServer for Newsbin users which includes VPN if you sign up for the one year option.

Do you know by any chance how many VPN connections are allowed? Giganews just offered an deal from 2 to 5 connections via VyprVPN for the same price I am paying for.

Thanks for the Links btw, :)

There is only one VPN connection. All VPN's work this way, you can't have multiple VPN connections unless you have a custom setup and have multiple Internet interfaces. The VPN provides an encrypted tunnel that all connections go through. You can run your same number of connections to the news server through it. The VPN is transparent to Newsbin.
