News: Retiring Free Usenet

Published: 19/12/2022

As of January 1, 2023 XS Usenet will be retiring its Free Usenet service.

Our Free Usenet service has always been our way of giving back to the community, something we have happily done for many years. There are however high costs associated in human resources and infrastructure with providing this service. 

After over a decade of offering Free Usenet service to the community we have decided to completely shutdown our free service. Effective immediately, no new signups or support inquiries will be accepted and as of January 1 all Free Usenet subscriptions on our platform will be terminated.

The funds that we'll be freeing up will be deployed towards our capital expenditure budget for 2023 to support further product development in the VPN and Cloud Storage sector. 

We realize many of you will be disappointed in our decision and we're hoping to simplify your transition choices by offering the following options:

- All of our Premium Usenet and VPN products are now available with a 7-day risk-free trial
- Until January 1, coupon "ZT0GKTTHDYU0I" can be used to receive a 40% recurring lifetime discount on all of our Usenet and VPN products

We appreciate your understanding and wish you a healthy and happy holiday season.
