They were doing really well for a while but now they've gone the way of Astraweb.

Noob question - are Highwinds resellers to be avoided for any reason? Also, does anyone have experience with their VPN service?

Whatever you do, DO NOT believe any post by user boltman2007. In fact, block him now.

Usenet is where some people download games, movies, pictures, mp3s...literally anything, illegal and legal. What you do there is not our concern but some people here think they can be the internet police and preach their views to you, like the name above.

Can anyone comment on how this compares to Thundernews? Lately I've been having trouble grabbing things using Thundernews and am wondering if this would be any better. Thanks!

I signed up with a .edu account (which could/should have provided an additional 25% discount), but was charged $7.80. Paypal didn't let me review the actual payment amount before charging. Here's the email I just sent to support:

Quote :
I signed up from the promotion page which listed a $6/month unlimited plan: https://www.newsdemon.com/billing...April2013a but I was charged $7.80.

I used a .edu email address, which should have netted an additional 25% discount.

From http://www.newsdemon.com/educator...scount.php :
"This exclusive offer from NewsDemon.com Newsgroups is available on all of our subscription based plans. Simply enter your school email address at checkout and our system will automatically apply your discount." Nothing on that page or the promotion page listed above indicates it cannot be combined with other offers.

Paypal did not allow me to review the actual amount which would be charged before charging my account. Please either: correct my subscription rate to $6 - 25% = $4.5/month and issue a refund of $7.80 - $4.5 = $3.30, or cancel my account and refund my full payment of $7.80.

Keep in mind, for most users block accounts are really a much better value. At the TB price it's 4.4 cents/gb. You would have to download over 137 gb per month to make the $6/month more cost efficient than the TB block account.

Highwainds is one of the major usenest companies and they are based in the United States and therefor follow DMCA takedown notices very fast and effectively. Some people do not like this and prefer independent or a Dutch usenet provider.

Google is your friend! The lifehacker article is out of date with software & providers but the info is good!

Thundernews is also a Highwinds reseller so you'd have the same issues!
