Let’s make things clear from the start: You likely won’t need to spend time looking for an Easynews coupon of any kind, as the prices offered by the provider are more than generous already. Over the course of my Easynews review, I tested every package they have on offer, and I can say with quite some surprise that Easynews has managed to squeeze all its many features and perks into a range comprising just 10 to 15 euros a month.
If you want to try before you buy, you can do that too, no Easynews coupon needed. There is a completely free Easynews trial available on the provider’s website, which grants you up to 50GB of data volume for 14 days. Further saving you unnecessary expenses, the company relies on an all-in-one business model where the subscription includes a VPN and a newsreader client – meaning there is absolutely no need to pay a cent for any third-party software with Easynews. The only major downside is that Easynews requires you to subscribe to a yearly plan, which means high bills up front. Further reducing flexibility is the lack of any block plans or prepaid options.
Try Easynews free for 14 days.
During the sign-up process, Easynews prompts you to select a subscription package that will automatically go active once your free trial ends. During the Easynews trial period, you can use 50GB of Usenet data within 14 days. If you manage to exhaust your data allowance before the end of this period, you can still cancel your trial if you don’t want to continue with the paid subscription.
Easynews operates a network of servers in the USA and multiple European countries. This doesn’t mean that users outside of these locations need to worry, as the Easynews network easily supports global networking. Server memory is upgraded and expanded almost daily, so the Easynews retention time also benefits from steady improvement.
Unfortunately, the Easynews website is not available in German as of yet, being only accessible in English. However, this shouldn’t be too big of an issue, as the company has definitely succeeded in making their website and interface accessible to anyone, regardless of experience or English fluency in particular.
Easynews customer service is available around the clock, and an account cancellation request can be queried to them very easily. As a matter of principle, I would always recommend sending them a written request via email or using their contact form. You should also take note to request a written confirmation that your account has been cancelled, in order to be on the safe side for the case of any potential misunderstandings.
Usually, taking Usenet with you on the go means download some kind of plug-in or extra app for your smartphone. With Easynews however, you can enjoy the luxury of the fully browser-integrated newsreader bundled with your subscription. Just log into Easynews, open up the newsreader from your browser window, and that’s it!
Easynews is indeed safe and trustworthy. Not only is there full SSL encryption on all connections through this provider, but there is also an integrated VPN for additional privacy and security. And, just by the way: Privacy on Usenet is a big priority in general – there are no intrusive ‘personalized’ ads collecting your data, for example.
No downloadable client or software of any kind is necessary when it comes to Easynews. The included Easynews newsreader runs perfectly in all environments, on every operating system, and does the job as well as any alternative could. By offering such high-quality software for free with every Easynews subscription, the company spares their customers from additional costs tremendously well.
Easynews has been able to prevail against so many others in the Usenet arena for a good reason. Having observed their development over the last couple years, I am pleased to see that the Easynews developers view continuous improvement as a priority. Only two years back, the Easynews client had not been made fully compatible with mobile devices yet – which was perfectly fine, as Usenet was mostly a desktop phenomenon anyway back then. With the quick changes so common in this niche, Easynews decided to adapt as much as they could. In the process, they created a standard-setting newsreader that I can’t recommend enough.
But these are not the only reasons to go for Easynews. It is also the around-the-clock customer service that without a doubt makes for a better overall experience. Pricing is also a great advantage, as Easynews provides a lot of value with their subscriptions, even if it could be a bit more informative for the German market in particular. For example, displaying prices in euros, not merely in US dollars, would be a nice addition. Payment methods are also a bit limited, with only credit cards and PayPal being supported. Only because of these small flaws do I give the provider a rating of 4 stars out of 5 in my Easynews review.
