The editors at UsenetReviewz.com have been busy for the last few weeks looking over the offerings and performance in the last year of the many Usenet providers to determine the winners of the Annual UsenetReviews Providers Awards. They found that all of the providers work very hard for their customers, but there are a few that have stood tall above the others. The decisions have now been made, and the awards are about to be posted. Here are their winners of the top 6 UsenetReviewz Provider Awards for 2013.
2013 Best Quality Usenet Provider Award goes to Giganews. Their consistent speeds, longer retention, highest completion rates and the extensive additional services offered with their Usenet accounts have won them this award for the third year in a row.
The 2013 Just The Basics Award goes to Supernews. In the last 12 months Supernews has distinguished themselves in this category by having the highest quality, best speeds, most newsgroups, and lowest cost for just a basic Usenet provider.
The 2013 Best Value Usenet Provider Award goes to UsenetServer. This provider has won this category for their ability to give their members the “most bang for the buck” in features, added services, and support. This is their third year to win this award.
The 2013 Easiest Usenet Award goes to Easynews. Only the most user friendly providers can win here, but there are other factors that are examined in detail, too. The quality of the service, support, educational material, and cost of the service, are also factored in.
The 2013 Most Improved Simple Usenet Provider Award goes to Usenet.net. In the last year their developers have been constantly busy with new features, bug fixes, and general improvement of their services. Their support, retention, and completion rates are also considered in this category.
The 2013 Most Improved Newsreader Award goes to the Newshosting Newsreader. The last year has seen several high quality features added to the Newshosting newsreader, and a few updates that has kept the client operating in just the exact way their members want it to.
UsenetReviewz editors are careful to point out that in cases where personal preferences could play a major factor in the decision, such as newsreaders and web based services, more emphasis is placed on the technical aspects of the category to eliminate as much bias as possible from the scoring.
There are nine more categories in the annual UsenetReviewz awards. Categories for Usenet search indexes, most anonymous/private, web based services, etc., that have yet to be announced, though they have been decided. Pending award announcements will be posted on UsenetReviewz.com in the coming weeks.
