I don't know if this is a targeted promotion but you can try and see for yourself. The email did not tell when deal ends.

Same Highwinds backbone as Newsdemon. If you already have Newsdemon, then there is no benefit unless the price is lower.

Per https://www.reddit.com/r/usenet/wiki/providers AstraWeb and newsdemon are the same — so best price wins!

However only 1TB/mo downloads may ruin this deal IMHO

Also FWIW I appear to have a $30/yr newsdemon account - so lower price than this. Similar deal can be seen here: https://slickdeals.net/share/iphone_app/t/13989344

Apparently it is for existing members. I edited the title.

I thought I saw an offer for $18/year for one of the providers. Anyone else see that? How can I find that?

A couple years (or so) ago, I started encountering lots of "incomplete" issues with Astraweb, so I ended up switching. Tried several, ended up on newshosting.com. No issues (that I've noticed) since. I do have a 'block account' with them, though looking at sabnzbd, it doesn't look like it's getting hit at all, which is good. Wink

I used them from 2001 until a few years ago. I got sick of the Sunday night crawls (couldn't pass 120 kb on a 300MBs line). I used to pay $96 a year

Now I use Usenentserver for $20 a year lifetime and couldn't be happier

Never been on Usenet, so Idk what this is exactly. From the looks of it... is it just for news reading/watching? I think I'm missing something here because some are complaining about the bandwidth limits. Could someone kindly explain what this is for?

Same kind of deal on Tweaknews, but for €2.99, instead of $2.99,
but it includes Privado VPN.

You keep your eyes open.

I've got an alert set up here at SD, that triggers on the word usenet Wink

https://slickdeals.net/f/13166866-usenetserver-com-20-yr-unlimited-and-free-vpn

But I can imagine Covid made the companies less aggressive in their marketing, and fight over market shares this year.

It's also used for downloading. It usually has really fast download speeds (depends on provider). You'll probably want to look into if you're thinking of using it. It's pretty big on movies and tv shows but some stuff gets taken down quick. You just need to find some good NZB providers. A lot of them are private and many are paid.
