Easynews has been a Usenet Service Provider since 1995 and offers both NNTP and Web-based Usenet services, which is rare in the market. First and foremost, what really sets them apart from other Usenet providers is their easy yet very powerful web interface that allows you to access Usenet from any device without the need of any software. Just pull up your web browser on any device and log into your account at Easynews.com to access their web-based newsreader.

The Easynews newsreader is mobile-friendly, secure, and fast. It also allows you to search for anything available on Usenet with fast search result previews so you can validate a file is exactly what you want before you decide to pull it from Usenet.

For those who prefer to use their own newsreader, Easynews offers a very cheap NNTP package that gives you unlimited downloads, 60 connections, free SSL and some of the best retention anywhere for just $9.95/month. This also comes with a 2 week free trial to their web interface if you are interested in checking it out (recommended).

They offer Roll-Over gigs. This means any GB you don't use in a month are rolled over to the next month. Any unused gigs in any months continue to follow over to following months and never expire. Easynews additionally offers header compression, unlimited speeds, some of the best retention on the market, loyalty Gigs (which are free GB given to you for every year of continued subscription) as well as a zero-log VPN included for free with the Big Gig plan.

Free Trial

A free 14 day trial with 50 GB of high-speed downloads is included for to new customers of Easynews. This will allow you to test both their web interface as well as the NNTP Usenet access beforehand. Note: Unlimited NNTP Plan doesn’t offer a free trial to both, but instead gives you 14 days of free access to their web-interface only.

Retention and Completion

They offer 365 days web retention for their Classic Plan and 525 days for Plus Plan. You can also add-on an additional 3,489 of retention to either plan for only $2.99. Their Big Gig Plan comes with a full 3,820 days web retention. 3,406 days NNTP retention is offered with all their other plans. The completion rate is 99%+, which is fantastic when you consider the NNTP/web Usenet access combination.

Connections and Speed

Easynews NNTP access is amazingly fast. For the web interface, the download speeds are also very fast with the Easyboost web accelerator, a feature that greatly improved the performance of our searches, file previews, and downloads.

Easynews is quite unique as it gives you fast anywhere access to your favorite newsgroups. You can browse and download securely from wherever you are from literally any device with a web browser. Also noted earlier in our review, the access is fast, secure, and very simple to use.

Free VPN Access

The Easynews Big Gig plan includes a free zero-log VPN account with free Windows and Mac software. You get unlimited access, including unlimited bandwidth and unlimited server switching every month.
