Tera News is a provider of uncensored, unlogged NNTP news server, offering an access to all newsgroups, including all of the binary newsgroups. If you are Usenet power user, we recommend you look elsewhere as you can find unlimited downloads with high retention rates in the ten dollar range.
Tera News ‘ website is not very generous with information and while they do give some important pieces of information, such as retention rate(Tera online Gold), both for binary and text groups, there is no information about the completion rate. Regardless, some other sources state that retention for both binary and text groups is 90-180, although it is unsure if this information is outdated.
Tera News does not throttle download speed. In other words, subscribers should get a maximum speed provided by their Internet service provider. On the other hand, the public server has limits on download speed as well as the total number of users at once, Tera Gold while their paid servers have no such limits.
While Tera News tends to advertise everywhere, nonetheless, we still don’t find their Usenet service offerings very competitive compared to our list of best Usenet providers.
