Notes On This Provider
UsenetBucket is Usenet service provider headquartered the Netherlands. They offer 50 connections at 400 Mbit/s for €12.96 (euros) per month.
Their Usenet newsfeed comes from XS News — an independent Dutch feed. The company also touts a responsive 24/7 support team. They do have a reputation as a straightforward company, known for fulfilling their promises (in terms of download limits and server speeds).
While testing their sign-up process, I did find that their email and IP check is a bit stringent, probably because they don’t require a credit card for registration. They offer a free trial that lasts “7 days or until you have reached the data-limit”. The data limit is 5GB.
UsenetBucket also offers blocks accounts.
