We really like the new website Easynews – nice work! The new tutorial video is great and offers beginning Usenet users a simple, step-by-step guide on how to download newsgroup content. We are also very pleased to see that Easynews has increased their NNTP binary retention to a more competitive level of 400+ days as this is an important feature for users.
If you are new to Usenet we recommend Easynews as one of the best providers for getting started for the following reasons:
• You do not need to purchase, download and configure a separate newsreader as Easynews offers its own web-based newsgroup browser. If you prefer using a separate newsreader product, Easynews also supports this option.
• The browser interface has an easy-to-use newsgroup search function which allows you to preview thumbnail images, download binary and other files quickly and easily, and save the files to your computer. You can just login to the system and go!
• Easynews also offers a newsgroup browser acceleration feature called Easyboost that can increase your throughput speeds by an average of about 100%.
• UsenetAdvantage.net rates Easynews’ support team as the best currently available. They provide quality 24/7 support via web chat, phone, and e-mail. Support is readily available to help with questions from subscribers.
Easynews has been in this business for over 15 years and is the original web-based Usenet service. The service is solid and we feel that Easynews really is the best resource out there for new users.
