What is a VPN?

A VPN or virtual private network is used to create a secure and encrypted connection between your internet enabled device, such as a laptop, desktop or iPad, and our private network of VPN servers all across the world. Our VPN servers in turn give you open access to the internet using a shared and anonymous (different than your actual IP address) IP address so that you you can browse and download online privately without your internet service provider or other third party being able to see your online activity. Because a connection to our VPN servers is encrypted, anyone trying to look in on your online traffic will see only scrambled useless data.

Using Usenet over our VPN is the best way to maintain total privacy and security as well as circumventing any download speed throttling of our standard Usenet ports via your ISP.

To start using our VPN, visit our signup page or activate the service as an add-on though your account control panel
