– Only one newsreader available free of charge
It’s always particularly convenient to try before you buy, and with Usenet providers it’s no different. As the quality of a provider can often be told clearly from the quality of their free trial, there’s no good reason not to delve into the details of Giganews’ free demo policy below.
14-day full service trial
Those who wish to try out Giganews can do so for 14 days after initially signing up for an account with the provider. It’s worth noting that you get entirely unlimited data during the free trial period; download speeds are not throttled either. Once the 14 days expire – assuming you haven’t manually cancelled your trial account up till that point – the free demo is automatically converted into a paid subscription.
What else is worth knowing about Giganews? How about their dedication to providing bulletproof connections with no downtimes? Giganews manages this thanks to its advanced four-server network, placed throughout Europe and North America, which facilitates connections with some of the largest ISPs worldwide. Giganews servers use proprietary software designed for maximum speed – so long load times are not a thing to worry about here. Using upstream routing, a fail-safe backbone infrastructure, and top-flight networking tech, the provider ensures flawless, high-quality Usenet access for everyone.
The Giganews Accelerator is a software tool that provides full 256-bit SSL encryption for your connection irrespective of which newsreader you are using. The Giganews Accelerator also includes a handy tool for compressing headlines. This allows for downloading headlines at up to ten times the default speed.
First, it’s recommended to check if any speed limits were set via the Giganews Accelerator. Thankfully, this can be remedied with a single click of the mouse. For utilizing your connection in the best possible way via the accelerator, the default server address should also be changed from “localhost” to “119”. If none of this helps, you should probably contact customer service.
Those who wish to cancel Giganews can close their account with the provider – in which case they will only have to pay for as long as the subscription period was selected. On the other hand, a letter of cancellation can also be drafted and submitted to customer service via the contact form or chat. In both cases, you can expect customer service to get back to you after about ten minutes – if you have requested a confirmation of cancellation, this will be sent to you.
Giganews is a completely secure Usenet provider as far as I am concerned. Why? Because the provider works with modern SSL encryption, but also integrates VPN software into its offering. Either way: Your data is absolutely safe here, but your privacy is also protected in the best possible way.
Currently, in my experience, no Giganews Bitcoin payment is available. However, the provider lets you choose from eight different payment methods, as I explain in my Giganews review. These cover all major financial service providers and major credit cards, so flexibility can definitely be enjoyed.
So, in conclusion, what can I say about Giganews? All in all, this is a provider that offers excellent, all-inclusive subscription packages. From the included VPN to the unlimited data included in all plans, everything that you could want from a provider is there. The rates are also impressive, if I can say so. Why’s that? Because not only do they keep up with current market trends, but above all they provide genuinely unlimited access – and still they allow you to freely select the runtime of your subscription. As Giganews also scores highly thanks to their impressive customer service, and because of the 17 years of retention they have managed to squeeze out of their server hardware, I feel justified in giving it four out of five stars. The only major drawback worth mentioning: The lackluster newsreader selection, which leaves some users simply uncared-for.
