Frequently asked questions

What is Usenet?

Usenet is a global network - almost like the Internet. Usenet is divided into thematic forums called newsgroups. It is the largest platform for exchanging news, opinions and articles. Usenet is the birthplace of many popular cultural curiosities: the first "smileys" as well as the expressions "LOL" and "OMG" found their origin in Usenet. With USENEXT you get fast access to Usenet. OMG!

Do I need additional software for Usenet?

Yes, you need a newsreader. Your USENEXT access allows you to choose any newsreader. Most newsreaders are desktop applications, which need to be downloaded. After getting quickly familiarised, the newsreaders are easy to use.

How does the test phase work?

After registering for the test phase, you reach the members’ area of USENEXT. In the first step, it is important that you choose a newsreader. Enter your USENEXT login data there and off you go! Now you can use your free data volume. If we don’t hear from you during the test phase, we will assume that you like our service and are continuing with your access. Your account will only be charged at the time of this extension.

Can I switch packages during the test phase?

Yes, you can. Our recommendation: Test Usenet for a few days and then decide which package is the best one for you.

How can I terminate my package?

Please log into the members’ area, call us or send an email to our customer support team. During the test phase, it is possible to quit until the last day without any problems.
