Not really sure if this will be popular here or not.. 




Usenetprime is a new usenet startup with amazing opening deals just $1.60nzd for a 500gb block which is probably the cheapest you would find to be honest. I brought 2 500gb blocks for myself, setup in sab was a bit a pain, but I eventually figured it out after following the tips on changing your password in their reddit thread (linked below). I just finished downloading a 5gb file which was uploaded 2.5 years ago and was hitting speeds of 10m/s which is pretty astonishing really! :o Keep in mind this is on an old 2011 laptop with a 2.4ghz wifi adapter so people with better setups than me should extract much better speeds? So yeah off to a really good start!


They also take PayPal so your protected as-well.


Might be handy for someone that like downloading :P
