this is a good deal, especially if you like the browser that comes with newshosting,
If you wanted to get usenet access for even less, you can do a price match with newsdemon that gives you a 110% price match, dropping it down to 2.69/mo
both are working off the same backbone, so its essentially the same service

Why would I get Usenet from a reseller that has less features on a price match? Rather buy directly from the provider so I am guaranteed to get what I pay for. Thanks OP!

Some will find this a stupid question, but....
Is the VPN only for usenet, or can I use the VPN for web browsing too?

You can use the VPN as normal when you are not connected to Usenet. Assuming you have your SSL ports enabled, all Usenet downloads will be encrypted by SSL. The VPN will keep your other online activity private, for example when you are searching for nzbs on index sites.

Currently using their 9.99 month plan. Just wanted to test it with sonarr, radarr setup. It's amazing for my use, I have found close to 99% of my items. I have emailed support to see if they will give me yearly promo. Will post back with their reply.

edit:3-28-20
Just got a reply stating they would be able to adjust the price to reflct the promo at my next billing cycle date, so this is a sweet deal compared to their 99.99/year price.

I've sent NewsHosting a support ticket asking for a price match and they came back telling me that 2.99 is already pretty good.
How did you get them to pricematch?

Edit: Nevermind, I need to open my eyes

This seems misleading. Says $2.99 per month but to get it to be $2.99 you have to purchase a year in advance. Just advertise it as $36/year! Maybe I dont want to spend $36 right now?

Also, when i click the deal it doesn't work and it hangs as it waits for all the background scripts to run. Kind of wild considering they advertise they do not log and no tracking. Yet they are watching every hit to their page with about 15 different trackers.

Tracking web metrics and logging usenet server activity are two completely different things.
