Easynews has just launched, for the first time ever, an unlimited NNTP-only Usenet access plan. Available at $9.95/month, Easynews subscribers can enjoy unlimited NNTP Usenet access, uncapped access speed, free SSL encryption, 972 days of binary and text retention and over 99% completion for one of the best prices on Tier-1 Usenet access available anywhere.
All subscribers to the new unlimited NNTP-only plan will also receive 14 days/10 gigs of FREE access to the exclusive Easynews web-Usenet interface. After the free trial period, subscribers can add web-Usenet access to their monthly NNTP-only plan through their Easynews account management panel by logging in at www.easynews.com.
NNTP is an Internet application protocol, similar to the more familiar “http” as part of the “http://www” that begins most website addresses. NNTP stands for Network News Transfer Protocol and and is used specifically for transferring Usenet news articles between news servers. Easynews’ NNTP-only account will allow you to setup a connection to their news servers using a newsreader application, instead of using Easynews’ browser-based interface.
As the leading browser-based Usenet newsgroup reader, competing in the NNTP market is the next logical step for Easynews. It recently hit a new milestone by reaching 972 days of NNTP retention. With plans to expand its services even further in 2011, Easynews is poised to be a major contender against major NNTP-only Usenet newsgroup services.
Additional enhancements will continue to be introduced over the coming months to further expand the overall Easynews offering. Subscribers can look forward to developments such as app-free support for mobile devices as well as usability enhancements to the Easynews browser application.
