Easynews is running a sale on their Unlimited account for $35.88 USD. This is a really low price point for this provider and the membership includes access to both their NNTP and HHTP servers. If you are new to Usenet and don't want to go through the automation process or use NZB's, use their web search feature.

The searchable web interface is one of the hidden gems of Usenet.

Hmm, I'm on Tweak's $30EUR deal, but I can't max out my 1Gbps connection. Should I switch?

Tweak and Easynews are complementary to each other so you may want to keep both and use one as a backup.

The usability is only a consideration if you are not automated or are looking for 72hr+ old stuff. Automated take downs affect nearly any operating in USA, and many share the same back feed so A feeds B but if it's not on A due to a fast automated take down it will never even make it to B..

Your indexer would be the place to invest if you are not buying NTD servers in Europe and are subject to DMCA, I am not overly familiar but most companies do not use NTD as they have a USA footprint or host and don't want to be shut down.

If you are not having issues filling what you're looking for a new nntp server won't add any benefit. I would check out recent Usenet maps to know who is backfeeding who as it constantly changes as omicron slowly eats any existing competition.

Eweka is my recommendation and they never have any notable sales which to me is for good reason. 80% of things I look for that are old (week to month) but aren't obfuscated come from their servers successfully. Otherwise an obfuscated indexer usually makes mirrors that'll work on any Usenet service that meets the retention requirement so the choice is strictly between speed, retention, and price.

Can anyone speak to the quality of the VPN they provide? It's called Privado and I can't find much current information about it as a service.

I had easynews through Kodi Gaia until 6 weeks ago. Got a "come back" email with this offer. Signed up, but it seems I can't use it with Gaia anymore?

You would already be pulling from the same feed with your current setup. The only advantage for you would be the web search feature, but not sure if it's worth it if you already have automation setup.

Easynews is HW (DMCA) backbone. If you have a usenet on HW already (which is the far majority) then this is redundant. If you want a backup you should look at another backbone with NTD such as usenet.farm block or wait until Eweka goes on sale.

EDIT: $36 isn't really hot. It's pretty normal price. (Newshosting is $36 always, NewsgroupDirect price matches (link on their website to offsite deals). Usenetprime is $15 for 6 months or $50 for 2 years. (It's on UsenetExpress backbone)

@AlexV616 look at the regular pricing of Easynews, they offer monthly plans that range from $10-$30 a month, this is far better than a normal price. If you want a reliable backup you are way better off going with Eweka vs any of the UsenetExpress backbone providers.

Never look at regular price. Newsdemon is $25/year with code REDDIT50.

Well, shit. I got in on their Valentine's Day deal for $90 USD/year for unlimited (I think? somewhere around that) and thought I was doing pretty well. Now $35 USD? Makes me wonder how they are doing as a company. Or maybe they're just getting more competitive with other providers..

You can ask them to switch to this deal at the end of your current billing cycle. I asked, and they switched me. Will be on the new plan in September.

Exactly what i did, their CS isn't all that intuitive but I submitted a ticket and they answered within a few hours.
Hello,

We'll be happy to set your account to renew on this special offer.

I just tested it against 3 leak testing sites and it did not leak DNS. I have a sub at a different provider and this is the same VPN that's included. It used to be a different provider which was faster and had more locations. They have been adding locations as time goes on. For me, the speed of an US OpenVPN connection averages around 90 Mbps when connected via my router and latency is ok too. As a "free" bonus, it isn't horrible and in my experience, works more reliably than PIA for streaming.
