Astraweb’s Special Offer Review
Astraweb is an old stalwart in the Usenet provider market. Their limited $11 a month offer is a can’t miss. They’re always my top pick when recommending services to people who ask, and with this offer, I don’t think they can be beat. You get the best value for price, retention, and speed.
1,200+ day of retention is staggering. Just under 4 years worth of Usenet content, and it’s still growing. All completion tests turned out with 100% on popular videos. Just about anything under the sun seems available with such a high retention.
Speed with Astraweb leaves no complaints. I consistently max out my 25 megabit connection with ease. With peering from Global Crossing, LimeLight Networks, and Savvis, it is not surprising that they’re able to get this kind of network performance.
They offer both US and EU servers, so you’ll always have a server near by ensuring best speeds and connectivity. 20 connections is more than you’ll ever need. I was able to max out my connection on only 5 connections.
Whether your worried about your privacy or network throttling, Astraweb has your back with SSL connections at no extra cost. SSL as a standard feature is a big selling point for Astraweb for me. Peace of mind at not extra cost, can’t beat it.
Astraweb will also add any newsgroups you want that Astraweb doesn’t carry. Astraweb has a simple request system in the customer control panel. It’s the easiest way to requests a new newsgroup with any provider I’ve seen.
You can’t go wrong with Astraweb. Anyone looking to switch providers or looking to get into Usenet for the first time shouldn’t miss out on Astraweb’s $11 dollar a month offer. No one else can match that price.
