Astraweb Review

Astraweb Special Offer

Astraweb is another independent usenet provider, that has been on the market since 2002.

They run their own serverfarms in North America and Europe, and do not resell access to anyone else.


Astraweb was one of the first providers, that started to upgrade its retention to give Giganews some competition.

Astraweb also used to offer webhosting, but i think that was discontinued some time ago.


The Astraweb-servers seem to struggle with incomplete files from time to time, besides that speed and retention are as promoted and should max out your line.


Let's have a look at their price plans:


Astraweb offers unlimited accounts, as well as block accounts, and with our Astraweb-Special deal, you can get their "Unlimited DSL" account for only $11 a month instead of $15! That is only $1 more than the speedcapped unlimited account and $6 cheaper then the 3-month subscription.

For your $11 per month you get:

  • unlimited downloads
  • unlimited speed
  • uncensored newsgroups
  • 99% completion
  • Retention days retention
  • 20 SSL encrypted connections
  • Usenet Servers in North America and Europe


If you just need a block account, Astraweb has three different offers for you.


25 GB for $10, 180 GB for $25 as well as 1000 GB for $50 (best value!!)

Both accounts include uncapped speed and 50 SSL encrypted connections.


For those who need smaller or bigger blocks, have a look at Usenet-News. They offer more block sizes and are a little cheaper.


All things considered Astraweb is a solid provider, that comes with a good retention and high speeds for a really low price! If you can overlook the little completion issues from time to time, you should definitely sign up with them!
