I have the 7.50 plan from thunder news. used to download a lot of TV series with it. haven't used it in a few months even though the account is active but never noticed a throttling when I was doing at least 500GB per month. was able to max out my crappy twc 25mbit line at the time using more than the default 8 connections or whatever.

thundernews has a deal for both for $7.99 a month. Unlimited. Can't vouch for VPN quality as I'm new to it but their usenet has been sufficient.

Anyone know how to get an existing thundernews account onto one of these Black Friday plans? Or do I need to cancel and then open a new account?
I was formerly on the $5/month for 75 GB. I signed up for the new unlimited deal using all my same info then canceled old account. Worked for me.

I've been using astranews for 98/year for a while. Any reason to move to one of these? I usually pull 15Mbps+.

I've had a Thundernews black friday account for a year now.

I dl maybe 0 to 5 GB per day, the occasionally 15 GB day. I've never noticed throttling, but have noticed that download speed can slow considerably at heavy usage times, mostly on Sunday nights.

I almost dropped them a few months ago due to takedowns. Things were being removed in minutes, before there was any real chance of downloading. They've gotten much better since then, I rarely have to use the 250GB chunk I bought from a premium service.

I've been using FrugalUsenet as my primary server for two years now, starting with a Black Friday deal back in 2011. I use Blocknews as a fill server for stuff older than Frugal's retention. Every now and then I buy a Tweaknews block for harder-to-get stuff. Very cheap combination and has worked great for me.

i don't know why you guys buy VPN for using with usenet.. usenet servers con use SSL connection, your traffic should already be encrypted end to end. I'd only use the VPN if you're doing "other" traffic.

Not sure why anyone does VPN considering you instantly get flagged by the NSA for having an account.

My job is so bad I wish I could overthrow my boss. It’s like this oppressive regime where only true believers in his management techniques will stay around. I work marathon-length hours and he’s made all these changes that have made it the worst architecture firm to work at in Manhattan. Like he moved the office to the Financial District and fired my assistant. She was the only one who knew where the blueprints were! I need access to those blueprints to complete my job! F my life, right? And he keeps trying to start all these new initiatives to boost revenue, but seriously we just need to stick to what we do best. There’s only one true profit center. I seriously feel ready to go on strike at any second.

I just read this article about how these free radical particles can cause the downfall of good health and accelerate aging. These could actually cause death to millions of Americans. If these particles are flying around undetected everywhere, does that mean we’re all radicalized?

Have you seen the second season of Breaking Bad? I just finished it. I couldn’t believe that episode where they poison the guy with ricin! That was the bomb! I won’t say any more because I don’t want to reveal the earth-shattering events to come.

Oh! So I’ve been planning a big trip for the summer. I’m thinking of visiting all of the most famous suspension bridges in the United States. So probably like the Golden Gate Bridge, The Brooklyn Bridge, and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. I’m gonna bring my younger brother and I know he’ll want to go to bars, so I’m thinking of getting him a fake drivers license, but I hope that doesn’t blow up in my face.

Okay, I gotta run! I’m late for flight school. I missed the last class where we learn how to land, so I really can’t miss another one. Talk to you later!
