Those new to GetNZB can download 1000 MB free in order to test the Usenet service and client. We tested a Ubuntu download from around 880 days ago and the completion was perfect. With that said GetNZB has built-in features to take care of PAR repairs. So if you download a RAR set that is damaged or incomplete GetNZB will use the PAR files to repair the content.
Performance varies based on which GetNZB Usenet plan you choose. We tested on a premum account and were pleased with the results. The 820 MB file downloaded at around 25 Mbps. without any disconnects.

Download speed for free users is very small. You will have full download speed with GetNZB after purchasing premium account.
About Usenet (news server) :
Usenet is one of the oldest computer network communications systems still in widespread use.
When a user posts an article, it is initially only available on that user’s news server. Each news server talks to one or more other servers (its “newsfeeds”) and exchanges articles with them. In this fashion, the article is copied from server to server and (if all goes well) eventually reaches every server in the network.
Many Internet service providers, and many other Internet sites, operate news servers for their users to access.
Download from Usenet – much better than Rapidgator or Uploaded.net
This tutorial will explain in detail how you can download files from Usenet.
You can find hundreds of terabytes of content on Usenet. Downloading is easy
and can be very fast and much better than Rapidgator or Uploaded.net. Price
for one month of unlimited downloads for GetNZB is $ 16 which is about the
same as for raipidgator or any other premium account.
One major advantage of Usenet compared to P2P download methods such as
torrents, is that it is not required do upload any content. Another advantage
is enhanced privacy. You only download from a single location, which makes it
impossible for others to monitor your downloads. Some Usenet providers even
offer SSL to encrypt your connection. And last but not least, you can get
download speeds as high as your Internet connection allows.
What is usenet?
Usenet exists since the beginning of the Internet and consists of a large
number of newsgroups. A newsgroup is like a bulletin board where people can
exchange messages on a specific subject. Currently hundreds of thousands of
different newsgroups exist for practically every subject you can think of.
To gain access to newsgroups you need to have an account with a newsgroup
server. With a newsgroup reader program (like GetNZB) you can then download
the file that have been submitted to a newsgroup.
Does all of the above sound difficult to you? Don’t worry, you don’t need to
understand any of it in order to download things from Usenet. Just continue
reading and you will be downloading stuff very soon!
