Our test result

We were particularly impressed by Usenet.nl´s free support hotline as well as their long retention- time. Moreover, the software is free and also available in 3 languages (English, French, German). All in all Usenet.nl achieved a very convincing second place in our test.

Usenet.nl registration

Registration is carried out quickly and comfortably via the homepage. You can download the free software and start to explore the Usenet immediately after you have registered. To do this you can make use of 610GB download capacity during the 4 week test period.

Cancelling the test offer

Cancelling the free trial period is possible at any time.

This can be done comfortably from within the software and will be confirmed within 30 minutes. Thus you won't have to carry any costs whatsoever by using the free trial.

If however, Usenet.nl has impressed you as it has us, you can choose from the following packages once your free trial period has run out.

Of course, these costs only arise if you decide to continue using your Usenet access after the trial period is over.

Attention should be paid to the fact that the monthly download volume only refers to the high-speed mode. Of course, should this be used up, you can still download during the respective month using the flat-rate mode(up to 2000Kbit/s).
